DNS resolution over multicast in a combined bind/ADS server environment

we intend to install a DNS server under Linux, also because the new
mailserver Zimbra seems to require a local DNS server.
Before we had only a W2K3 based AD domaincontroller which was(is) the
DNS server for 5 WXP clients (with database clients installed)

I heard that it's problematic to have an AD domaincontroller in the
network with the name abcdefg.local (resolution over multicast)

What is the real problem in having an ADS with the name abcdefg.local
in the same network with a Linux based DNS server?

Could the W2K3 based ADS continue to be the DNS server for the 5 WXP

Any feedback is appreciated very much. Thank you!
