I have a DNS name which is hosted from an outside DNS source.  I can assign the dns name www.testdns.com to the outside IP address 209.123.456.7.  The problem is how do I assign this to the machines inside IP address 192.168.1.1?  We have Windows DNS inside and use a DNS hosting site for the outside DNS.  

Thanks,

Just point www.testdns.com to the public IP in the public DNS and create a record in your internal DNS which points to your internal ip.

Also make sure that your internal DNS is being used as primary DNS for internal hosts.

ok, so basically once i point it to the outside ip address, all i need to do is make a record on the inside dns server for the same record?

The inside DNS is a different domain name but is being used as a primary DNS for internal hosts.  Thanks for the help with all the questions

As long as your inside clients are using your internal DNS server for name resolution, they will pull the record for testdns.com from your internal DNS server, which you will have set to 192.168.1.1.  Inside machines will see this, but since outside machines use the external DNS source, they will still see the outside IP.
