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).
thanks
