If all you are trying to do is rebuild (or migrate) your DNS without
boffing the rest of your current domain, you should be able to use:

    /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_upgradedns --dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ --verbose

I just used this to convert my flat-file back-end over to DLZ.  I DON'T
know if it understands pulling your zone out of the internal server and
converting it to bind9.
