Have you checked the order of the DNS servers on the client PCs? Your local domain should be first and then on the local server you should have forwarders to the other domain.

Use ldp.exe (part of the Windows 2000 Support Tools on the CD). Bind to your domain and see what it says under "ldapServiceName" in the results (it's buried in there). It should say your local server. If it says your remote server, then you know your problem... you're going to the remote server for LDAP queries.
