Our DNS service is being transferred from our Operations team to the Network team.
One of the options they want to explore is to place a load balancer in front of the Windows 2008 R2 AD integrated DNS servers to load balance traffic from the clients, giving flexibility to the back end servers if we ever move them.
Any thoughts on this approach? It seems more complicated but I can’t see a reason why it shouldn’t work, or be considered

Load balancers in front of DC\DNS servers

Should work, keep an eye out on query time latency before and after. As others have mentioned it should be load balancers, if there's a single load balancer I would avoid going that route.
