Imagine, you have now zone1.domain.tld which runs the PDC setup.
You can now setup the new AD zones for example with a new zone. office.domain.tld
Once you have dns running you can forward zone1 to the needed dns server(s) for the old zones.
And/or re-add the records in the new DNS.
If the local dns server with dhcp is already running.
Transfer it to the AD-DC, its not obligated, but its nice to have dhcp managing the DNS records also Within the AD.
This is what you should read also.
