    I am getting this message on a secondary zone connecting to a primary zone
    in other domain. Have verified that dns is being transferred however am
    getting this status when right-clicking on secondary zone domain. However
    status when clicking on forward lookup zones for this domain is "running".

  3. First, zone transfers are not enabled by default. You would have to go into
    the primary zone properties, zone transfer tab, and allow it.

    Second, if the zone is in another domain, but the zone is AD integrated set
    to Forest-wide replication scope, then it will cause a duplicate zone issue
    in the AD database, and since it is a only a secondary, the domain
    controller will reject the creation and normally change it to a primary AD
    integrated zone.

    It would be better to understand your infrastructure in detail to better
    assist. Let us know if the two domains are in the same forest or in
    different forests. If a child domain, you wouldn't want to setup
    secondaries, rather use parent-child delegation. If the two domains are in
    completely different forests, you can use secondaries, stubs or Conditional
    Forwarding (the latter being my choice).
