Create the zones on the windows server. Then just copy the data in the zone files in linux (look in /etc/named.conf to find the data files location) and paste the data in the corrisponding files in c:\windows\system32\dns\*.dns

You may have to restart the dns service when you edit those files manually, I'm not sure I've never done it.
