MS Active Directory explicitly requires local DNS servers (as DNS is used
to locate everything to do with authentication and management). That
doesn't have to be MS DNS, but DNS is non-negotiable requirement regardless
of organisation size and, to a large extent, the capabilities of IT staff.
At the very least the use of MS AD dictates the need for internal
authoritative servers and limits the choice to use Forwarders, or use Root
Hints for everything else.
