To check if zone transfers is allowed on a W2k DNS Server:
on the W2k DNS server--> right click on zone and select properties
In the properties display:
click on zones transfer tab
check if the "allow zone
transfers" is checked
verify slave servers for
the zone is the server list or
if "Only to servers listed
on the Name Servers tab" is checked,
verify your slave server is
listed under the "Name Servers" tab
