Active Directory/ integrated DNS zone question

We have a 2003 domain name xyz.local. Inside of DNS we have an AD integrated zone for xyzxx.com. We want to move to a new domain on server 2008 R2 called xyzxx.com. Will the two domains be able to run concurrently while we build it out and populate it? The DNS zone is the only area that the two would share. Clients on the existing domain will continue to use DNS from the 2003 AD servers. Clients moving to the new domain would be using DNS from the new AD servers. Everything I have looked at says this should work but I would love to get some expert second opinions...  I can add details as needed. Thanks!!

Yes it will work.  When you setup the new domain you'll have to decide if it will be part of the same forest, and have any trust relationship with domain xyz.local.  That will determine how AD is able to work between the two domains.

Our intent is to completely scrap the current domain and transition into the new domain. We do not plan to have any trusts set up. Thanks for the quick response!!
