MS AD/DNS as Slave to MyDNS/MyDNSConfig w/o Zone Xfer?

    I have been running the latest MyDNS/MyDNSConfig for some time now including using MySQL replication to a secondary server. I now need to delegate a subdomain to an MS AD/DNS server. My question is whether this is possible without doing a zone transfer and if so, how should things be configured in mydnsconfig. I found this webpage which gives a pretty good description of how to do it in bind.

    I attempted to duplicate this config into mydns/mydnsconfig. I can of course resolve the hostname of the delegate dns server since it is in the primary dns server but it doesn't seem to be forwarding the requests on to the delegate. I can use dig/nslookup to resolve hostnames of the subdomain directly from the delegate as well.

    Finally, the delegate is configured with the primary dns server as it's recursive resolver. That seems to be working fine as well.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Yes, I know how to do replication (#2). That works VERY well. Since the subdomain server I'm trying to connect to is Microsoft AD/DNS, then option #1 is not possible at all. And I was trying to keep from doing Zone Transfers. Thus my question about whether it's possible to configure a subdomain delegation as that webpage shows. I am NOT a DNS expert so if it's not possible and a zone transfer is the ONLY way, then just let me know.

    Thanks for your time!!
