ZF-5: Synthetic Dexron REQUIRED?!

Hey all,

I was under the OBS the other day, topping off before a trip, and noted that the plate on the side of the ZF says "Synthetic Dexron lubricant REQUIRED". Is it, really, or is it just an expensive suggestion? Is there any problem with substituting regular dino Dexron? Should I drain and refill if I do? (how compatible/ incompatible are they)

1995 F250 XLT 7.3T (on donor '97 engine with 180xxx miles) 4x4 - LuK SMF, Diamond Eye 3" downpipe to 5"straight-pipe exhaust. ZF5 manual trans, Curt hide-away gooseneck hitch, Super Duty suspension conversion.

1997 F250 XLT 7.3T - 2wd E4OD, alloy wheels w/ bald tires, gooseneck hitch, pretty much bone stock. Soon to become a trailer, spare tires, spare parts, and scrap.
