I tried the two patches you posted the other day and using the internal 
dns server got replication to work.

There was a minor issue of the secondary dc's details were not added to 
the primary's dns at all. Easily added manually though. The SOA doesn't 
include the secondary ns info

Thanks for the hard work..

Any question is easy if you know the answer!
