I am decent with DNS, although I haven't had to setup a secondary DNS server on a remote server before, so wanted to inquire here before attempting this...

We have a dns server right now, and have a server in a completely different location (city) that we want to setup as a secondary dns server. Both servers are Windows Server 2003. What would be the best approach for this?

Thanks.

If both the servers are on similar domains there would be no need to setup a secondary DNS server however, in other case you will have to do it.

Actually, it is recommended that you have one DNS server at each location. DNS requests across a VPN connection are not always reliable and do result in timeouts, depending on you bandwidth.
