Is Allow Zone Transfers needed with AD Integrated DNS Zones?


I am trying ot clean up a DNS implementation with serious issues.  At this time all zones are AD integrated.  I noticed that "Allow zone transfers:" was not checked in the Properties for most of the servers yet they seem to be updating.  Is this setting not needed for AD Integrated zones?

Prior to AD Integrated zones I would check "Allow zone transfers:" and then specify "Only to servers listed in the Name Servers tab"

Not if the zones are AD integrated, they are "replicated" instead.

No, not between AD DNS servers.

I was hoping that was the case.  But if I have a couple of servers that are not AD Integrated I can use this setting to allow them to transfer correct?
Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
Yes and you can specify their IP addresses specifically so you only transfer to those machines.
