Difference between forwarders and Stub zones

Whats the difference between stub zones and forwarders? They both seem to do the same thing, forward queries to appropriate name servers who are authoritative for the domains in the queries.

    Stub zones are dynamic, conditional forwarders are static. Both are only possible in 2003, keep this in mind for the test.

    Stub zones are capable of zone transfers (which only includes name servers), so they stay current. Forwarders do not.

    For example, if I'm forwarding DNS queries to my ISP, and they change their DNS servers, I have to manually update that. If someone in a child domain, which I've setup a stub zone for, adds or removes a DNS server, that change is automatically reflected in the stub zone.

    DNS Stub Zones, Conditional Forwarding, DHCP Superscopes, hmmm. It all sounds so familiar!
    All things are possible, only believe.
