You can create a secondary zone on another server through the DNS Management MMC snap-in. Right-click on the Forward Lookup Zones node and select New Zone. You will be prompted to create a primary, secondary or stub zone. Simply select the option to create a secondary zone, then specify the address of a DNS server that's hosting a primary zone for the domain in question.
