How do you check which dns server is master?

How can you tell what dns server is master?   We are having problems with zone transfer to a secondary server and we have two primarys and I dont know which one is master.

If the zones are ad integrated then there is no master.

You can see what machine holds the fsmo roles

You can check which machine is the 'master' of a zone.

Right click the zone in DNS then click the SOA tab

Ok I see all that now, why would I not be able to transfer a reverser lookup zone.  The two before it worked fine but this one will not transfer.

All should transfer on their own.
A reverse lookup zoen isnt crucial and you can always delete it and recreate it with no ill effects.  Then see if replication happens from one machine to another.
