Well, if I understand correctly, your main problem is the windows boxes 
running windows DNS, so this is not a bind problem. You might be better 
asking elsewhere.

However, honestly I would consider moving the traffic from the windows 
boxes elsewhere to somewhere you can log. There are great tools for 
doing this but they're all unix-oriented e.g. dnsdist, dnscap.

I guess you could try and get one of those running on a Windows box, but 
for the effort involved on about 100 servers, you might as well just 
spin up a recursive resolver that you *can* instrument, and point all 
the boxes at that.
