Weird thing happened, I deleted a forward dns entry but when I clicked on delete on the entry the zone itself got deleted.  Everything got restored, I have the dns mmc on my pc which I did this, I need to know is there anyway a zone could be deleted by deleting a single forward dns entry?

I won't say no, but the odds are very low.  It is more likely that you had the zone selected on the left hand side and pressed the delete button. I've never heard of a deletion of an entire zone in the way you have described.
