I regularly run diagnostics and the dcdiag /test:dns reports that I have a
broken delegated domain, yet I have never delegated this (There are a couple
of other admins).

I thought I understood this but I am down right stumped, it has to be
something relatively simple but I sure am missing it.  I don't have any
sub-zones delegated, at least none that I can find.  Everything is clean.
DC is pointing at itself and another for dns services, AD integrated,
forwards all internet requests to ISP.

TEST: Delegations (Del)
          Error: DNS server: IP: [Broken
delegated domain]
