Adding DNS to an existing AD controller

Current Setup:

Server A has AD and DNS.  Server 2003.  This server is slated to be retired.
Server B has AD and DNS. Server 2008.  
Server C has AD.  Server 2003

Since I am going to be retiring server A, I would like to make server C a DNS server as well (so I have a couple of DNS servers in the network.)

I am curious as to the best way to add DNS to Server B.

Should I be adding the DNS role, and then checking off in the AD that it is an AD integrated DNS?

A better way?

Thanks,

Tony

Just add DNS, it will replicate with AD - thats the best and simplest solution

I just realized I made a typo in the original question.  I want to add DNS to Server "C".

Does that alter your answer?
