I am putting another server on my domain. the second server is going to be used for just faxing, correct me if I am wrong but all I have to do is make sure that it is not handling dns or dhcp.

any other tips will be helpful.

That's correct, but it still should be in your domain (just like client PCs).

You add a server to a domain just like you add a PC.

Creating a new domain for a single server usually isn't recommended. Besides, you can't add a domain if the server isn't a DNS. On the other hand, the server doesn't necessarily have to be in a domain, but it's easier to control access if it is.

I have one server running dns I would be adding a server just to do faxes but I would put it on the domain so that anyone that has access to the domain can fax out of it. is this not the best way to go about it?

Yes. That's why I said that it should be in your domain.
