Our school is in a large University environment that uses DNS Bind.  It doesn't support updates.  We want to use a non authoritative DNS for our subnet so Active Directory will work faster with local replication. Is there a way to do this?

When you opt to install AD, elect to install AD integrated DNS and then use a fowarder to point to the BIND server.

You will have to be authoritative for the DNS domain used by AD if you want that to be any use. I take it that doesn't conflict with the zones stored on BIND?
