4 servers all on the same domain. Trying to figure out how to set up the networking. THis is a test env but it's based on a live network I currently have with a 2008 DC and 2010 Exchange server.  Eventually I will be taking 2008 DC and 2010 Ex servers offline once I migrate everything across.

1- 2008 DC / DNS

1 - Exchange 2010
Preferred  DNS in Network Control panel is pointing to
Secondary DNS is

1 -  2012 DC/DNS
Primary DNS: What do I point it to?

1- 2016 Exchange server.
Primary DNS: what do I point it to?

I'm not getting how to set up DNS for the new DC and Exchange servers so that when I take the 2008 DC and 2010 Exchange server offine, everything will still work.
