When trying to create a dynamic distribution list I get the following error.

A creation wizard for this object type could not be found.  A generic creation wizard will be used instead.  The object that is created may not be useful to the application that normally creates these objects.

Server 2008 R2, Server 2008 domain function level.

These types of groups are best created using the Exchange Management tools (EMC) rather than the AD Users and Computers tool. Open EMC, expand Recipient Configuration, then Distribution Lists and create a new Dynamic Distribution Group

What I actually want to do, is create a dynamic group that contains a department by OU, then add that group into the actual all staff distribution group?

Try this example to create a group:
New-DynamicDistributionGroup -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -Name "Mailbox Users DDG" -OrganizationalUnit Users

This will create a dynamic group called 'Mailbox Users DDG' which contains all the users in the OU called 'Users'.
