The AD server will populate out the necessary records to the dDNS 
server. I setup an empty base dDNS subdomain and everything was 
populated out by the AD server. Handles a long list of SRV records, and 
v4/v6 forwards were automatically populated for both servers and clients.

I have a very basic setup, which works perfectly for my needs. As to if 
more advanced features are broken by using BIND, I have no idea.
