If you DNS server Acts as the DHCP server, your computers should pick up all the DNS settings you have configured in your server, why would you want to hard configure your DNS settings in each workstation?

You can find most of these settings in:
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Network > DNS Client

I am not sure why you want these specific DNS settings on AD domain
U can configure your DNS server by populating required primary zones, secondary zones, conditional forwarders etc
U only need connection specific DNS suffixes In the below case:
U have primary domain: contoso.com, with this domain name space DNS will register host records dynamically
U also have another AD integrated DNS zone called xyz.com on same DC and if you want that DNS should register computer Host(A) records in that zone also dynamically
Is this your case?

Anyways, the settings you are looking for:
Enable Connection-Specific DNS Suffix and add your required domain name
Enable Register DNS records with connection-specific DNS Suffix
Both settings are there in GPO path mentioned by VB ITS
Apply this GPO on OU containing computers

Thanks. Which lines?..oh I guess the next comment answers :)
Mahesh;
Thanks for the reply
I have a weird problem with all my desktops (windows 8.1) will show on the NIC sign on exclamation.  Unless I put exactly the same settings the sign of exclamation will not go away.  Also with the sign of exclamation appearing mic applications like clip art and some other apps will not see the network.  Strange.
