Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Short answer, no.
You don't have to use a W2K based DNS server for AD to work.

However, it must support a few things:

1. SRV records - see RFC 2052.
2. Dynamic Update Protocol - see RFC 2136.
3. Incremental Zone Transfers - see RFC 1995.

BIND version 8.2 onwards supports all these, IIRC.

Version 9.1.3 certainly does, according to the administrator manual.

New However
If you have your DNS server integrated into Active Directory, it's one less thing to worry about - if your AD database files are properly looked after, so are your DNS files.

Double edged sword, of course - if AD becomes hosed you run the risk of losing DNS services. But then, AD is actually distributed over the domain controllers via replication and this means that it's really quite resilient.
