No, it is more than a frontend, there are differences in the set up of 
the internal dns server and Bind9. You can swap between the two, but 
most changes are probably the internal dns server to Bind9.
If you only have one DC, then the best choice is probably the internal 
dns, but you are probably better off with Bind9 if you have more than 
one DC, every DC can be authoritative for the dns domain for instance.
