This is the order you need:

1) Copy my zone files from my original DNS server to my second DC (dc2)
2) Run samba_upgradedns on dc2
3) Start BIND on dc2

You will need to ensure the config is in place for the samba_dlz
(dlz_bind9) module, as you will be using that.  The internal server
doesn't support secure updates yet.

Plus lots of testing.  This is just off the top of my head - slight
variation may be required, but others here should be able to help you
with that.
