I have a Windows 2003 network behind a firewall.  My website is hosted by my ISP.  I have a CNAME record with my ISP that resolves http://xyz.com to http://www.xyz.com.  However, I cannot do this internally on my network.  There, http://www.xyz.com points to my external website; however, http://xyz.com does not resolve and nslookup tells me that it is resolving to my DNS server.  How can I fix this and will it break my internal DNS capability?

on your dns server add an A record for you www.xyz.com and point it to the internal ip address of that webserver

I assume you run domain.local if so then you will need to do the following

you will need to create a new forward lookup zone with xyz.com as the name
In that zone you will need to create an A record that points to the IP of your website
