Since your domain is Windows 2000, for it to be AD integrated, your 2008 server must be a domain controller.

I believe you have to be up to 2003 and maybe 2003 R2 before you can have a non-DC host an active directory integrated DNS server.

Just checked, gotta be a domain controller to handle AD Integrated Zones.

The description of the replication scopes is a bit misleading like that. It really means Domain Controllers that also have the DNS Service installed. They get a copy of the associated partitions which contain the DNS data.

A member server is limited to standard zone types.

You must make the 2008 server DCs before they can have AD integrated zones.
