Screenshot DNS MMC showing the option and error

- Open DNS MMC
- Right-click to a zone
- Choose "properties"
- Go to the "zone transfers" tab
- Enable "Enable Zone Transfers" and leave the default "To any server" enabled
- Click "Apply"

produces the following error:

The zone transfer settings cannot be updated. This function is not supported on this system.

This happens with internal DNS and BIND DLZ module.

One additional note:

Per default in Samba with internal DNS, zone transfers are disabled (and can't be enabled because of this bug). For the BIND DLZ module, it's always enabled (even if the default in the MMC shows, that it's disabled), because of bug #9634 (please reopen that one, because it's a Samba and not a BIND bug. I already commented that one with information from ISC, what is wrong).
