DNS Question

  1. Hi Folks - Have a DNS question for the guru's.

    We have a 2003 AD called company.local and host DNS for it - everything is
    working great.

    We have a public space called public.com and our ISP hosts the DNS for it.

    Throughout the years, I have dummied up internal-only resolutions for
    public.com and served them up via WINS - under 16 characters, worked fine.
    We're about to retire WINS for good, and i want to move these dummy entries
    over to our AD DNS. I found where I can add a new forward zone - and add A
    records to it. Now on to my question - i don't want any overlap, I'd rather
    not add our "real" public address to our internal server, so if i add
    public.com to our internal DNS server, do i need to add all the records, or
    just the internal-only addy's? For instance,

    Test.public.com - i'd add this entry to the internal DNS for resolution
    www.public.com - if i didn't add this to the internal DNS, would it forward
    the request to the public DNS servers, or just return no value?

    Many kind thanks.

    All I'm afraid. Any you do not add will return NXDOMAIN.
