Windows 2003 AD adding a dns entry from an outside domain

Windows 2003 AD.  We are running a local dns server domain.local.  But we need to add a static entry from our state (

So somewhere in our network we need to put that 10.x.x.x = fqdn from

I know i can do a host file on each machine (there are only three of them) but something with more finesse would be nice.  But everything i try in my DNS only sets up  which I know will not work.
I realize i am missing something real obvious but this has never come up

ah got it thanks
Stub Zones are read only, you would need to enter DNS Server to copy the stubzone from.  it would containg a copy of the SOA record for the zone, along with copies of NS and A records for all authorative name servers for the zone.

If you want more control and be able to manage what is entered in the zone you will need to create a Primary zone.
