Best and easiest way in an Active Directory environment is to use Active Directory-integrated DNS. On your present server, run through the procedure at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/198437 and check to see if your zones are already Active Directory-integrated (and if not, convert them as per the article).

Once that is done, you must then simply install the DNS service to the remote DC. The installation procedure is detailed in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/814591. Once it's installed don't even create any zones - everything will replicate with Active Directory from the other Domain Controller in due course.

Once the DNS is replicated, you can then configure workstations in the remote site through DHCP to connect to their local server as the preferred DNS server, and the remote server as an additional DNS server if you wish (although having 2 DNS servers registered on workstations isn't necessary, 1 will suffice).

This procedure is a lot neater, tidier and simpler than using zone transfers.

Another problem when bringing a new server on line is you must make sure it can communicate with itself. Host A and SRV records are needed to register the computer with itself so, that it can be seen by other DNS servers. Then you can replicate the data over from the other server.

Make the zone ADI. If you don't want to use one of the default application directory partitions try using a custom application directory partition. In that manner you can reduce the ammount of servers hosting te ADI zone.
