I have done some delegations in the AD for the users. "Active Directory Users and Computers"

I would like to do the same for the DNS server.

I am running Windows 2003 R2 AD with DNS integrated.

Delegation of DNS is a different process to Active Directory Delegaition. In DNS delegation means taking part of your DNS namespace - a sub-domain for example - and making a different DNS server authoratitive for that zone. I am not sure that this is really what you want to do.

If you just want some other users the be able to manage DNS then just add them to the DNSAdmins Security Group.

Well adding them to the dnsadmins will let them have full access to DNS server. How do I restrict them, like giving them limited access.

What to you mean - limited access - what to you want them to be able to do or not do?
DNS is pretty simple - there are not may options that you can allow/disallow
