This isn't really the right newsgroup to ask this question in.  For
questions about
the Microsoft DNS Server, you might try microsoft.public.win2000.dns.

But to answer your question, you can handle networks smaller than /24s with
the Microsoft DNS Server.  See "DNS on Windows 2000," in the chapter
called "Parenting."
