    I'm studying for my 70-291 exam and need to clarify the advantages of
    a stub zone vs. a delegation. From what I understand a stubzone is a
    kind of superset of a delegation with the extra benefits being
    automatic updates of NS records in the child zone and also not being
    tied to the parent in domain namespace.

    ie) A stub zone in mel.company1.intranet can point to
    syd.company2.intranet directly where as a delegation would have to be
    done on company2.intranet to point to syd.company2.intranet

    Is my understanding of this correct? Can anyone tell me what a
    delegation can do that a stub zone can't?

    From my understanding, stub zones are only useful between zones in a
    contiguous namespace.

    Excuse me, I meant non-contiguous namespaces.
