I’m trying to re-organize my DNS topology and need a best practice matrix to follow and advice.
I have a mix of windows 2k3 and 2k8 DC’s running windows DNS – throughout USA. I have a DNS server in my DMZ that salves to my ISP external Master DNS.
Anyone know where I can find a good topology model for organizing my DNS per best practices, how to handle root hints etc?

It depends on where the most DNS client computers are located...

If most DNS requests are from the Internet, then the best location is your DMZ. Otherwise move the DNS in to the intranet and publish the DNS to external users if necessary.
