I presume this isn't AD and an AD integrated zone in which case it will go with installing AD on the new machine.  You can get the zone files from c:\windows\system32\dns\*.dns and transfer them to get all your records over.  You then need to install a new forward or reverse lookup zone as appropriate for each and point it at the *.dns file you have copied over into the same dir on your new server.  Configure any forwarders or other setting on DNS and job done.

MS suggest using zone transfer by making a secondary which is another way to do it... personally I'd copy the file if the servers were being switched over and the old one being pensioned off.

simplest solution has already been mentioned....just promote the server to a DC and let replication deal with it for you

True.  Kinda assumed not a DC as otherwise there is a lot more to worry about such as changing the schema for the 2003 server etc.  I assume it from Q it is a hosted server at an ISP.

nareshver , any feedback yet?

It doesn't need to be a DC.  It should replicate to a non-DC DNS installation as well as long as it's a member of the domain and registered with DNS correctly.

Barring that, zone transfers are one method.
