I am attempting to setup a secondary DNS server.

This 2nd DNS server, is also our 2nd active directory server.

I would like this DNS to be the "backup" or secondary DNS.

When i configured it, i told the DNS that the zone is maintained by another machine (specified the primary DNS server)

I then on the primary machine allowed secure zone transfers to the 2nd machine.

Is that correct?

Anything im missing?

This 2nd DNS server will be at our satellite office, and is being placed there to speed up DNS requests at that branch office, so the request do not have to be sent back to the central office.
