DNS Question _msdcs

HI
I keep getting an error form the best practice analyzer. It is commenting on me missing this _msdcs zone, but as you can see in my pic attached it is under my domain name zone.
I looked around and a saw one example where someone had this zone right under the forward lookup zones main root as _msdcs.mydomain.com and then their mydomain.com was under that and also contained this zone.
Any ideas??
Thanks.

thanks, yes i heard this _msdsc folder populates itself just seemed to good to be true haha. Yes since mine is under my domain folder i am guessing it has been taggging along since the server 200 days.
So if i add one under the forward lookup zones i call it _msdcs.mydomain.com? Then restart netlogon and let it populate? Then wehn it is done remove the one under mydomain.com or does it even matter if it is there?
I wonder if this will get rid of my error that i dont have any ldap srv records which i clearly do.
Thanks.

I can't recall which takes precedence if you have both the explicit zone and under your domain zone.  Best to delete the one under your domain (and remember to create the delegation).
