I have a WAN system setup in the following Config

Melbourne
Brisbane connected over Frame to

Sydney Server which is connected to the Internet.

The systems are running W2K domain controllers with DNS. I want to setup so that each DNS looks up local addresses and then forwards to the other before forwarding to the internet for public name resolution

each Brisbane -> Sydney -> Optus ISP DNS
or   Melbourne -> Sydney -> Optus ISP DNS
or just Sydney -> Optus ISP DNS

However the DNS servers do not allow me to put in Forwarders because they claim that the servers are root servers. Is there a way I can achieve what I desire?

Never saw Windows DNS servers claim to be root servers. Only can imagine, that you didn't setup zones for your company.

remove the . zone, wait 15 minutes (or restart) and your dns is no longer a root dns.
