nslookup, w2k3 dns

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
When i do an nslookup, it defaults to the AD domain hq.anydomain.com.  I have another standard primary zone called mydomain.com, which is what i want all my hosts to use.  The hq.anydomain.com was created before i got here and is the root domain.  What i would like is that any client that does an nslookup, it will default to mydomain.com, not hq.mydomain.com.  Both domain controllers as well as clients that are added to the domain are appeneded with the hq.anydomain.com dns suffix.  I think I will have to build a new prestine forest in AD for mydomain.com, do a trust between mydomain.com and hq.anydomain.com and migrate over,,, back to the main question,, is there anyway to change the default for when a client does nslookup?
