Hello 796624 (nice name! :) ),
You can add the Universal Distribution Group to a non built-in domain security group; now I make you a question, why would you do that? I’ve done strange things on lots of ADs but never this one…just for curiosity.
Bye

    You can also convert the distribution group to a security group and then add it to the domain local group. It has to be a security group first.
