dcdiag error - how to resolve (LDAP Error 0x3a)

I have Event ID 4512 error - The DNS server was unable to create the built-in directory partition ForestDnsZones.mydomain.local. The error was 9906.

Upon checking with dcdiag, I realised that it was something leftover from when one of the DC failed and I had followed the removal using NTDSUtil Metacleanup. But it seems to be not enough?

Anyone can walk me through how to remove the remnants?

After a metacleanup I still seem to always have to go through my dns and sites and services and verify removal of all orphan objects left over from removal of dc.

It seems that my DomainDnsZones and ForestDnsZones are both missing on my DNS server.
Any help on how can I should recreate them?

command prompt, start ntdsutil.
ntdsutil: partition management
ntdsutil: connections
ntdsutil: connect to server DC1
ntdsutil: q
ntdsutil: list (full list of all partitions on that DC)
ntdsutil: delete NC DC=dnsDomainZones,DC=XXX
