In our environment there are two domains namely "a.com" & "b.com", both have tree root trust relationship established. there are about 8 domain controllers in total (a.com =2, b.com =6).

All the domain controllers are DNS servers and active directory is integrated into DNS.

Our primary DNS servers are BIND 9 - Linux DNS servers (ie in our client machines the linux dns server is set as the default DNS server)

Should the Service Locator Records be configured as given in this URL  ? http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/interopmigration/linux/mvc/cfgbind.mspx?mfr=true

or is it enough if we configure Forwarding like shown below

zone "a.com" {
        type forward;
        forwarders { Address-List; };
};

I would go with the forwarders personally. Dynamic Updates will follow those and it allows you to maintain the fault-tolerance of multiple Windows DNS servers, with AD Integrated zones each is Primary.
