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?
