May be you should look at the problem from other point and configure
microsoft's dns server to forward queries to BIND? Of course you will
need to reconfigure clients to use microsoft's dns only, but in this
case microsoft's dns will serve queries to your domain and BIND wil
server qeries to other domains. I think it will be better solution.
