does scavenging need to e configured on both the server and the zone?
if the server is set for 7 days, and the zone has a different setting, does the zone setting voeride the server setting.
What if this is set on only the zone and not the server?
Will scavenging still occur for that zone?

    Scavenging and aging must be enabled both at the DNS server and on the zone. The formula is as follows: Current server time + Refresh interval = Start scavenging time. As for which setting would override the other, I assume the server settings would override zone settings as it is higher in the hierarchy (I may be wrong, but most Microsoft settings follow this rule) Also remeber if you get a question on this on the 70-291, that only records that have been dynamically added can be scavenged without updating the timestamp (for instance by importing the records froma text file). Hope this helps. If you just set scavenging at the zone level, you still have to enable it at the server level.
