Copy DNS zones from MS Primary to Linux Secondary

I am trying to find a way to copy all the zones from our Windows 2003 DNS to our Linux Bind 9.3. 4 server. I have search and googled but not finding any straight forward info on how to set this up. Can any one provide a "How to" on this topic?

In addition to allowing zone transfers from Windows, you need to configure named service.  We have an office in India but no domain controller.  I had configured bind to pull from DNS servers at our US data center and works well for them.
If the BIND end is configured ok then you have to allow zone transfers from the Windows primary to the Linux secondary.
Yep - set the Linux up as a secondary and configure zone transfers from Windows

To restate the question I was looking for a doc on how to configure both sides for this.

This looks to be a configuration that would require adding each zone prior. What I was looking for was a way to automatically copy all the zones over.

Well, putting full automation to it will possibly require lots of programming skills and it is very unlikely that a single document will provide enough information to perform that automation task. The software or script must get the zone list from the Windows DNS server, set zone export/transfer permissions and modify and reaload the config file at Linux server via SSH as necessary. This sounds like an ISP level problem as usually it's not a problem to do the work manually.
