You can change the settings to ignore the "bad" names in your
Microsoft has made the "_"'s a standard (and we rolled over and gave
in, btw). Also your AD controllers will need the ability to
make updates to the _ zones... you'll need to add those zones to
your bind config and make sure an acl (or whatever) is in
place to allow the AD servers to manage those zones.
