DNS for MAC book

I was told that MAC books need to use its own DNS for resolving IP. It can't use Window DNS or those records will not be synchronized into the books. What's time ? Can anyone give me any idea on this ?

Tks. I means we need to setup a DNS server for synchronizing with MAC book. Window DNS doesn't work well in MAC. Is it some like OSX server ... ???

All of the OS query DNS in the same way, there isn't any compatibility limitations for DNS in any OS.

The purpose of DNS is to resolve queries, so it just there for everyone (OS/Device).

YES! the DNS is must have thing in every machine, which should be configured for resolving queries.
sometimes it is the automated process from DHCP or ISP.
sometimes it requires manual configuration.

I think they are talking about update the MAC clients on the DNS record on OSX Server... which can't be done by Window DNS ..  correct ?

in this discussion you could find your answer, if DNS is properly configured as it should so it grabs A records for MAC's client as well.
