I've recently installed 2008 r2 standard edition.  I added the domain controller role.
Whenever a lookup domainname.com using nslookup i get  a Non-authoritative reply. Every After restarting the server there would be warning message in the dns event log saying that the dns is waiting for the initial synchronization signal from the AD dC .  When the system fully starts up, restarting the DNS won't give such message in the event log. The primary domain name of the network interface is setup to use (127.0.0.1). is this related to DNS ip binding?

Change the 127 address back to the actual IP address of the DNS server.

I removed the domain server role and then added it again. Now it's working fine
