I ran DNS Metadata Cleanup and i have 6 servers in the "Delegations" list that do not exist any longer. I have ran ntdsutil, metadata cleanup, remove selected server. I just cant find how to remove these servers metadata. Looked in forward & reverse lookup zones and can't find them in there either.
Error: DNS server: server1.domain2.domain1.gov.
           IP:<Unavailable> [Missing glue A record]

Thanks,

I think you're confusing a couple items.  You can clean up metadata for domain controllers which no longer exist, but that is separate from DNS records.
To correct your DNS delegations, navigate to the forward lookup zone and inside of it you will see the delegation (looks like a grayed-out icon).  Double-click the delegation to open it, then you can right-click and select properties.  Then you can choose which name servers to use.

I'm in forward lookup zones and only objects in there is all of my domains. Nothing that says Delegation.

A delegation is inside of a forward lookup zone.  So if you have a zone called example.com, look for the delegation inside of it.
