Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code.

What is the role of a DNS server?
In one case, this occurred on Windows 2000 when Active Directory and DNS were installed for the first time for a domain. It stopped after the new domain controller was restarted.
This event can be ignored if it occurred when Windows was started in Active Directory Restore mode or some other form of Safe Mode. Otherwise, investigate further.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. See ME258072 for more details.
The DNS is probably configured to load from the Active Directory but there is no AD configured. So put it to load from file.
