Microsoft AD DNS multi-level subdomain not resolving

I'm trying to create a multiple level subdomain but records won't resolve. I have Domain.com. I need to create a record in sub2.sub1.domain.com. Records in sub1 work fine but records in sub2 don't resolve.
I created the record at the top level by typing in the sub-levels. I noticed there are no records at the sub1 or sub2 level except for the record I added. New Host (A or AAAA) -> server.sub2.sub1.domain.com -> x.x.x.x
What does a sub-domain container need to pass the query another level down?
