    Quick question for the DNS gurus :). If you choose to use AD-integrated DNS
    is there still a need for primary and secondary servers?

  2. AD itself relies on DNS!!!, wich means that it is necessary the primary DNS

    If you use AD Integrated DNS, each DNS Server will be a Primary Server. If
    needed, another operating system's DNS Server can be setup as a secondary.

    Absolutely agree with the other posters...

    All domain controllers become Primary servers. You can set up a
    secondary server on another server (this can be a Win2K3 member server,
    doesnt have to be another operating system - dont know why you would do
    it though, unless for some reason you didnt want a domain controller at
    one of your sites?!?!?!?!).

    The advantage is that all replications will take place when AD does
    this, so in theory it should cut down on traffic (probably doesnt
    though ;D)
