    Hi, is there a way to do a zone transfer from Windows to Bind? The domain has split DNS server:

    ns1 and 2 pointing to bind
    ns3 and 4 poingint to Windows

    I need the bind server to resolve the hostnames that it doesn't have. Suggestions?

    Go on, have a guess
    Should work as normal. You should simply need to setup the slave entries in named.conf and modify the zones on the other DNS server to include the slave in the SOA. You'll also need to allow AXFR requests from the bind server. Bind and windows both use the standard DNS protocol, so nothing special should be needed.
