Well, yes and no ;-)

When you provision your AD domain, you will get DNS records for
'ad.tecnopon.com.br' created in AD, you should get your domain members
to use the AD DC as their nameserver and set the DC to forward anything
else to your existing domains nameserver.

To put it it another way, create your AD domain as a subdomain of
'tecnopon.com.br', use the DC as the nameserver for the subdomain and
your domain for every thing else.
