If its just DNS, you should be able to simple create a new ZONE under example.com for 'sub1.example.com' and build out a tree like that.

From the dnsmgmt tool I could not see how to add a ZONE. What I did do that worked was to add a new Host Record (A) and in the name field of the dialog box that pops up I entered sub1.sub2.example.com. This automatically created a folder called sub2 with a sub1 host record in it. –  User Jul 9 '10 at 22:58
That works as well, just replace "folder" with "zone" and we are doing the same thing:) Glad it worked. –  Taylor Jul 9 '10 at 23:45
