So you can look into using:
Get-DnsServerResourceRecord

A potential script might look like:

$DNSServer = "dns01.domain.local"
$ZoneName = "domain.local"
$NodeDNS = $null
$NodeDNS = Get-DnsServerResourceRecord -ZoneName $ZoneName -ComputerName $DNSServer -RRType AAAA -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
if($NodeDNS -eq $null){
    Write-Host "No DNS record found"
} else {
    Remove-DnsServerResourceRecord -ZoneName $ZoneName -ComputerName $DNSServer -InputObject $NodeDNS -Force
}

Open in new window

Except 2008 R2 doesn't have those DNS commands...
You could look into DNSShell by Chris Dent.  https://dnsshell.codeplex.com/
Otherwise I think you're looking at parsing output from dnscmd, or I think I've heard of using WMI to modify DNS, but I've never looked into that.
