DNS setting so external dns resolves to the internal dns server

    I have a SBS 2003 server running ISA server. The external address to the
    server is like smtp.server.com. My internal DNS is like server.local (AD).
    Smtp.server.com which is a A record located on an external DNS server. I
    need to have the local server resolve smtp.server.com to the local server
    rather than the external IP address.

    Is the best way to do this to create a new primary zone on the internal DNS
    server for smtp.server.com? This certainly works but appears to cause a few
    other issues. The other thing I thought of was to create a primary to just
    server.com and then create an A for smtp. Does the same thing from what I
    can see but then I need to add other records for other A records I still
    want to resolve externally.
