Windows DNS  zone

We have an ActiveDirectory Integrated DNS hosted on a pair of Windows 2003 boxes.  The zone/domain name is SF.ad.  We have a business partner who has an internal DNS zone (partner.org) that is not an ActiveDirectory Integrated zone.  We have an open network connection to the partner's DNS servers.  

We would like to use the partner's DNS servers to resolve names in the partner.org zone while using our own DNS servers to resolve all other zones.

Are there any options in Windows 2003 DNS that will allow us to do this?

Thanks

Bill

There are several ways to approach this
You could create a secondary zone for partner.org and transfer the records over
You could create a stub zone
You can also create a conditional forwarder.   That is what I'm showing in my example.  Right click on your server then properties, then on the forwarders tab I entered partner.org and used 10.10.10.10.   The key here for you all is that you have network connectivity to the partner
Thanks

Thanks MIke.  This conditional forward looks like it might be the ticket.  I'll try it tomorrow and post the results here.
