Best practice

Our company has external domain name www.xyz.com, hosted offsite.  We are in the process of elevating our standalone Windows 2000 server to a Domain Controller, DNS, AD, etc.  What would be the best practice in naming the server? xyz.local or corp.xyz.com or just same as the external xyz.com?

xyz.local would be considered the best practice.  Windows can run information for other domains without difficulty, things including Mail services, web sites, and DNS can be easily done.
