They call library functions in the DLL, which in turn handle all communications with DNS servers (over UDP or TCP) and return the final results of the lookup back to the applications.

Microsoft's DNS client also has optional support for local caching, in the form of a DNS Client service (also known as DNSCACHE).

DNS data can be stored either in master files (also known as zone files) or in the Active Directory database itself.

Microsoft's DNS client is capable of talking to multiple DNS servers.Prior to Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, the most common problem encountered with Microsoft's DNS server was cache pollution.Although Microsoft's DNS Server had a mechanism for properly dealing with cache pollution, the mechanism was turned off by default.The DHCP Client service registers name and address data whenever they are changed (either manually by an administrator or automatically by the granting or revocation of a DHCP lease).In Windows Vista (and Windows Server 2008) Microsoft moved the registration functionallity from the DHCP Client service to the DNS Client service.
