I have this point. I want to use BIND, because the server on wich 
resides BIND is also a gateway to internet and every client is 
configured to use it. And this server I prepare to switch to *unix 
system, and I am moving every necessary service from windows integrated 
to opensource multisystem support.

I just can't for now move active directory's dns database to BIND.
