users not receiving mails from external

i have a domain called college edu.org as a public registered domain and i am having an exchange in my infrastructure. user@college.edu.org and created an mx record poining to my exchange server

i need to create a new domain name for my students to use the mail address. So i have decided to create a subdomain in my external dns called student.colleg.edu.org, so that my student mail id will like user@student.college.edu.org. and need to point an mx record to microsoft windows live server , exchange labs

now when a user send a mail from outside to my student mails, it gives an NDR , unknown host user@student.college.edu.org.

i think this is an error with DNS, could anyone help me to setup up the subdomain in my external dns
