DNS tries to load a deleted stub zone. how can i get rid of it?

Last Modified: 2012-08-21
Hello Experts,
i have an AD with 2 DCs which used to be part of some trust relationship with some other forest. apparently there has been a stub zone in DNS created but the masters are no more available. if i delete the zone from DNS i still get errors

The DNS server encountered error 32 attempting to load zone mydomaine.com from Active Directory. The DNS server will attempt to load this zone again on the next timeout cycle. This can be caused by high Active Directory load and may be a transient condition.

if i recreate the zone on one DC as a primary. on the secondary DC there is a zone mydomaine.com listed with red cross and if i click properties i can see it is a stub zone and it is active directory integrated but i cannot change anything because it is somehow damaged.

the question is. how can i get rid of the domain from the AD?
it does not make any issues or problems for me just full logs of those events in DNS. everything else works fine.
