DNS Scenario

prettypumpkin1964
I am working a two branch offices and have been tasked with where to place an Active-Directory Integrated DNS server and what type to use.
One of the branch offices is very small ( 5 users) and has very slow network connectivity. Do I need a DNS Server and, if so which type of zone should I host?
The second branch office is much larger ( about 30 users) and has better network connectivity. does this office need a DNS Server and, if so what type of zone would you recommend?
have to respond in detail with clarifying questions, recommendations and/or considerations

Just going off your original question, I'm going to go off the assumption that this is a private WAN using Windows Server 2003 in which case you should be able to get away with a "Active Directory-integrated zone" for the 30 user network and a "stub zone" for the 5 user network.

Basically your question is just to vague. :-)

HTH...
