Because we run our AD in our top level domain (for certain reasons) and we are running BIND as our DNS, we have the problem of windows domain controllers inserting A records directly against "".

Some research has indicated that one option is to set the registry value RegisterDNSARecords to 0 on all DCs to stop them registering A records against

What I wanted to get some feel for is what is the impact of removing these A records against the domain (both AD and internet top level) ?  

Will there be any service impact in our AD environment ?

Experience anyone ?
