The SBS wizards are built around several assumptions, one of which is that SBS handles DHCP. by trying to keep it elsewhere, you are actually increasing complexity.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg637864.aspx

Note bullet point 2. one of the SBS wizards, the connect to Internet wizard, actually expects you to move DHCP. either this wizard was skipped during setup, or an unsupported workaround was used to temporarily bypass the wizard.

While manually setting the dns server will work, this would need to ge done for EVERY PC, even the XP machines. Increasingly services that rely on AD will not work with NetBIOS so applications such as outlook will have issues. And while manually setting DNS sidesteps those issues, it increases management and defeats much of the reason to even use DHCP. after all, if you are setting the dns setting, why jot assign a static IP address as well.

There are many benefits to using SBS as intended. While there are workarounds, unexpected behavior can result and tend to prove more costly down the road. Moving DHCP is trivial and there is usually no compelling reason to keep it on a firewall/router.

Your network diagram does not change my advice. Windows 2003, like XP, is based on older technologies that are being phased out. Simply moving DHCP to the SBS server as it is designed to be used will resolve your issue and will not conflict with your network topology.

As I have previously posted SBS Should be the ONLY DNS server. The snapshot you posted shows that the gateway is also acting as one, and your gateway cannot resolve AD queries.

Secondly, use the SBS wizard to join to the domain. Don't join manually.
