Is there a way to exclude a RR during a zone transfer?

Hello and thanks in advance for any advice.
We have 2 locations that we'd like to share name space.

Lets say mainoffice and branchoffice.

I'd like names in branchoffice to be, and I'd
like to
zone transfer from mainoffice to branchoffice.

The problem I'm trying to solve is that both locations run different
active directories, that we'd like to segregate. If the whole file is
then the SRV records in the forward lookup will allow people
in the AD domain authenticate on the
AD domain, which is something we dont want.

When we zone transfer, I'd like to exclude SRV records from the forward

Or conversely, if we could only include certain types of records in the
that would be even better. All I want to transfer is A, CNAME, TXT, and MX
in the forward file.

Is there a way to limit what record types can be transfered either by
or include, or is it only the whole enchilada?
