I am running Small Business Server 2003 with a SonicWALL firewall.
In the firewall DNS settings, Is it advisable to point to the Server's DNS IIP address or is it better to use an external DNS?

What applicances use the Sonic for DNS resolution?  all internal LAN clients must be pointing at the SBS Server for the domain to funtion in the correct manor.  If the SBS2003 is configured to use the Sonic then the Sonic defintily should be pointing to an external DNS Server. If the SBS2003 is configured with an exteral DNS server (when the Internet Connection wizard was run) then it shouldn't  really matter where the Sonic points for DNS (As no one is using it)
