How are you zones configured?
Are you using Active Directory integration zones?
In which case there may not be a .dns file as the zone is saved in AD.

You can use the zone export function in DNS Admin or the command line tool: dnscmd with the switch /zoneexport to create a dns export which can then imported on the new server.

Where do you want to migrate your DNS zone to?
If it is another DC on your existing LAN and your DNS zone is AD integrated then your migration process would be much simpler than the one you're currently using.
