wireshark setup a filter on a dns server

I have wireshark installed  on my dns/dc  2008 r2 server, and I don't know how to setup a filter for a dns query to a host.
The reason is that the host I am querying are part of a conditional forwarded, which has been having difficulty with dns  resolutions for the past four days.  The dns connections does go through  a vpn tunnel , which is working. and I can get to the site via ip address but sporadically I can't use dns to get to the site. Thus I wanted to setup a wireshark capture to validate dns from the dns/dc server to the destintation hosts

i think you want to narrow down to the DNS traffic between the DNS server and a specifoc computer only. am i correct?

if so, try the following filter.

(ip.src == 1.2.3.4 && ip.dst == 5.6.7.8 && udp.port == 53) || (ip.src == 5.6.7.8 && ip.dst == 1.2.3.4 && udp.port == 53)

where 1.2.3.4 is the DNS server and 5.6.7.8 is the DNS client computer.
