Azure DNS is a service, not a resource! So don't require using it in a context of a resource group!
Thank you for the feedback.
Azure Resource Manager is fundamental building block of all Azure services, providing a number of cross-platform benefits such as a shared authentication and authorization framework enabling role-based access control.
A resource group is a fundamental concept in Azure Resource Manager, and that’s why Azure DNS requires DNS zones to be placed in resource groups.
We would like to understand your concerns better to look for alternative solutions. Other than needing to create a resource group and specify the resource group name when creating a DNS zone, is there another issue? We would be interested in any specific feedback if using a resource group causes any specific scenarios not to work for you.

I would like to put in a feature request to be able to get detailed DNS query logs for my zones hosted on Azure DNS. I want to be able to see which DNS records are being queried and source IP of the DNS clients.
