you can manage DNS zones using DNS RSAT tool even if you choose 
BIND(_DLZ) as your DNS backend for samba. there is no problem with that 
at all. of course not all option(s) in DNS RSAT tool works (maybe this 
is same independenly from DNS backend), but generally speaking you are 
able to manage DNS zone records and create whatever new forward/reverse 
DNS zones without issues.

I am still unclear though how to get DHCP working with it to dynamically update it since the wiki only has instructions for Bind. Can I use the internal DNS Server and get dynamic updates working with it?
