dns forwards updates to outside dns

I added a new server to the domain. After reboot, I see this message in the event viewer:

The system failed to register pointer (PTR) resource records (RRs) for network adapter
with settings:

   Adapter Name : {6E545F80-9270-42C1-865E-E9E392B036AE}
   Host Name : server1
   Adapter-specific Domain Suffix : mydomain
   DNS server list :
           10.4.3.2, 10.4.3.3
   Sent update to server : 192.175.48.1:53
   IP Address : 10.4.3.9

 The reason that the system could not register these RRs was because the update request that was sent to the specified DNS server timed out. This is probably because the authoritative DNS server for the name being registered is not running.

 You can manually retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its settings by typing "ipconfig /registerdns" at the command prompt. If problems still persist, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator. For specific error code information, see the record data displayed below.

Why is it forwarding DNS updates to a server outside?

It would only do this if it was configured to do so, can you post an ipconfig/all?

Maybe you do not have a Reverse DNS Zone setup for that Subnet in Active Directory or the zone is not configured for dynamic updates?  Check the Reverse Lookup zone in DNS on 10.4.3.2 and 10.4.3.3.  Do you have a zone for "3.4.10.in-addr.arpa"?  Check the Properties of that zone (assuming it exists) and the Dynamic Updates selection.

oh, i just reread!  Sorry, Duh.  

Check the properties of the DNS Server and/or the Reverse Lookup Zone to see if that server (192.175.48.1:53) is listed anywhere?

Ok it appears to be trying to register to an old root server.

Thank you. I will split the points. I was missing reverse DNS zone for that subnet.
