DNS Issue

We have an internal active directory using the domain name of xyz.com, but we also have a hosting company that hosts our website (also called xyz.com). The problem is that we have static records in our Active Directory's internal DNS server so that we can pull the website up. Is there a way in Windows DNS to make it get the recent IP address from the hosting provider's DNS servers, or possibly to delegate the host records for the website entirely to them to resolve? It's normally not a problem having static entries, but the hosting provider occassionally has to change the IP (for various reasons) and we'd like their DNS servers to handle the web resolution so that we don't have to worry about changing our static entries.

Thanks!

That's not possible; your DNS server is (and has to be) authoritative for your AD domain, and DNS doesn't allow to delegate just a few host entries of the same domain to another DNS server.
One possibility to work around this would be to have a script running on a regular basis that compares the www IP address in your DNS with that set in your ISP's DNS, and if they differ, updates your DNS.

Oh well; to be honest I didn't think there was a way, but I figured I'd ask anyway just in case.

Thanks!
