under DNS Name servers tab, how can you tell if those servers listed if they hold an AD integrated or Primary or secondary zone without logging on to them?

    You need to actually log into the server in order to run the DNS console and identify the types of zones on each DNS server. You cannot do it directly from the IP of the server alone.

    Note that you could install the Adminpak tools ( to your computer, which would allow you to access the DNS console and remotely manage the DNS server without remotely logging into the server itself.
