This is not a requirement.  We do not have our DC that is running
W2k DNS point to itself.  The netlogon code will do an SOA query to
DNS to find the SOA and extract the name of the master server.
We point our W2k DNS to out public DNS servers, which have copies\
of the "_" zones and can answer the SOA query authoritatively.
