In windows DNS server,
• Primary Zone: In this, the file is saved as normal text file with filename (.dns).
• Secondary Zone: It maintains a read-only copy of zone database on another DNS server. Also, it acts as a back-up server to the primary server by providing fault tolerance and load balancing
• Stub Zone: It consists of a copy of name server and SOA records which is used for reducing the DNS search orders.
