Syncing DNS and error 4007.

We have three servers, a DC, Mail, and  TS.  Right now the DC is the primary DNS server.  It was set up to have the TS as the secondary but I would like to change it to the mail server.  DNS syncs between the DC and TS no problem, but when I look at the Mail servers DNS I see no Zones and under the event viewer are Event ID 4007 errors.  Can someone explain to me how I can make the Mail servers DNS sync with the DC?

First a few questions;
1) is your zone AD integrated?
2) where is your mail server looking for DNS?
3) Does nslookup work when you check records for your domain from your mail server?

Now if I am not mistaken, and I may be, since I am assuming your mail server is not an AD server I believe you need to manually create add the zones in DNS on your mail server and set them to sync with your other DNS server.  Again I am not sure of this but if the zone is AD integrated you may need to promote the mail server before it can work as a DNS server for an AD integrated zone.

Take a look here for some troubleshooting on the event

If the primary DNS server is set to accept zone transfers from certain IP's, you will have to add the mail server's IP in the DNS zone properties.

I would create a secondary zone on the mail server and pull it from the primary. It sounds like the Mail server is not a DC, so integrating the zone in Active Directory might not help.

Be sure to create an NS record on the DC for the mail server.

can you post some nslookup results from your mail server along with an ipconfig /all?
