Hosting your own DNS and creating subdomains?

Anyone here know DNS well?

we have 2 DNS servers hosted in our office, since we have AD/DC, just the standard Server 2008 DNS installation.

We have a url  (abc123.com, to which we have pointed to dynip.com to do url redirection for subdomains.

sub01.abc123.com  points to
sub02.abc123.com  points to

their customer response time has been less then stellar since their client application does not let you direct a subdomain to a directory URL, only a direct IP, it has been one week to redirect a URL we have to a new directory, with no response and i cant tolerate that.

We have many directory based sites on the same server we use for reporting.

How can i go about redirecting one of our domains to our own DNS servers and then create our own subdomains and point them where i want them to go?
