How do I get ForestDnsZones and DomainDnsZones to appear on Windows 2003 SP1 DC?

I have one domain with 2 subdomains.  After I ran Forest Prep and Domain Prep, I promo a Windows 2003 SP1 to become a first Windows 2003 Domain Controller.  I, then, installed AD Integrated DNS on this server.  However, I don't see the ForestDnsZones and DomainDnsZones on this new Windows 2003 DC.  I am afraid to go further with the upgrade.  Will the missing of these two zones cause any problems when I try to promo other Windows 2003 servers to become a DCs or upgrade other Windows 2000 DC to Windows 2003 DC?  I could see all the ForestUpdate and DomainUpgrade when I ran the ADSIEdit app.  There is no error in the eventvwr log on any of DC.  There is also no replication error.

The records were broken out with 2003 server to allow you to replicate less data between DNS servers if you chose to do so.  When upgrading from 2000 or adding a 2003 server to a 2000 domain you will not get these zones.  The _ldap record should still exist under ForwardLookupZones, DomainName, Sites, (SiteName), _tcp

You will not have any issues continuing with your upgrade or promoing any other 2003 servers into the domain.
