How do I have DNS server, on WIN 2K3, resolve a public DNS address that is the same as the AD domain name?

I have a client that has a public domain name that mirrors their AD domain name.  Problem is that when trying to access the public name eg. www.example.com the "page cannot be displayed" error page comes up.

This worked correctly until the server had to be reloaded.  I can't get www.example.com to resolve to the public addy, but can get start.example.com to resolve.

Tryed a A name record, but maybe not correctly. :-)
Thanks,
matt

Add an "A" record pointing the host www to your public IP address.

No problem, this is just a pitfall of using a public domain name for your local domain.  I prefer to a domain.local so as not to have issues like this.....:)
