No DNS server configured in trusted domain

I have two Windows Server 2008 domains abc.corp and xyz.local. Trust has been setup for these two domains by someone else, but I tried verifying the trust and it failed. It's a two way trust and the trust type is realm.
 
I checked the properties of xyz.com and there is no DNS server configured (or showing in the properties). I need to make sure that there is a proper trust between these two domains, so that users in abc.corp can log on to xyz.local (and vise versa), and file share permissions in abc.corp can be set for users in xyz.local (and vise versa).
 


This would be my first time setting up domain trust.

First of all - check network connectivity between DCs.
May be there is a firewall issue ? Try to allow all IP traffic between DC .
Than - try to establish trust according to MS manuals

Servers are in the same office building. On one LAN and same IP address space. No firewall between them.

Just found out that the trust established was only set up on the domain controller for abc.corp. Setting up a two way trust on xyz.local now. Concerned, because xyz.local still does not have a DNS server setup.

xyz.local still does not have a DNS server setup.

How many DC's you have in xyz domain
If DNS is not installed on DC ...Who is playing here..router or something else (Not recommended)
can you run ipconfig /all and dcdiag /q/v on this XYZ DC
