AD DNS Zone deleted

We have a small virtual environment with a domain controller and an RDS (both are Server 2012 R2). We have been having an issue getting a new vm with Windows 8.1 to see the domain. In troubleshooting this one of the techs deleted the Active Directory forward lookup zones with the idea of recreating them. I was able to recreate the primary zone but am not sure how to or if it's possible to recreate the AD forward lookup zone (_msdcs).
Can this be done and if so how?

You should restart the
DNS Server Service
ipconfig /flushdns on the DNS server
Restart the NetLogon Service to regenerate the SRV records

Thanks Will.
I followed the instructions in the link you provided but am not getting the SRV records to populate. Attached are the 3 resulting warnings in the Event Viewer system logs...

Take a look at the Microsoft KB Article for event 5781

Also you might need to recreate your SRV records to see if that helps.
