Creating a Secondary DNS Zone via WMI and C#

Hello everyone,
  What I am trying to do is create a secondary DNS Zone on my Secondary Name Server but I am a bit confused. I have a bit of code that will create Zones no problem (below).  The problem I am having is I am not seeing how to create a Secondary Zone and point it at the primary Name server.

I have taken a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms682757(VS.85).aspx but there doesn't appear to be a property that is available that will allow me to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ManagementObject mc = new ManagementClass(_scope, new ManagementPath("MicrosoftDNS_Zone"), null);
                mc.Get();
                ManagementBaseObject params = mc.GetMethodParameters("CreateZone");
 
                params["ZoneName"] = zoneName;
                params["ZoneType"] = (UInt32)zoneType;
                params["DsIntegrated"] = 0; //false
                ManagementBaseObject zone = mc.InvokeMethod("CreateZone", params, null);

The property may not exist.  I use WMI Code Creator to find the properties and values that are available, and for simple queries.

It does exist. It's this one:

> [in, optional]  string IpAddr[],

Noted here:

And should be a string array.
