where is ntdll.h

In Windows nt/2000 native api reference, ntdll.h was included in some
examples. But nowhere can I find it in my installation with vc6+sdk+ddk(NT
SP5).

Any hint ?

    ntdll.h is custom header file and not any standard header file( to be found
    in VC6 or SDK or anywhere else). In the native api refrence, ntdll.h header
    file is created to include ntddk.h and windows.h in the same source file
    using namespace (otherwise these two header files cann't be included in same
    file because of redifinations and compatibility problems.

    thanx
