Zone transfer control outside directory replication is currently not
implemented. This means, whatever you setup in AD DNS via MMC; this
setting is not respected and you will get an error if you try to change it.

BIND9_DLZ currently allows zone transfers and you can't disable it. On
the other hand, the internal DNS doesn't and you can't enable it.

The last discussion about that was, that at least both should act the
same way and disable zone transfers for BIND9_DLZ, too. Until yet, no
one submitted a patch, but if you setup something that relies on that
behaviour, you maybe get a surprise one day after updating. :-) For more
about that discussion, see
