Howto Configure MS-DNS to Resolve only 1 Host local

Hi Experts,

our internal Network ist domain.local. Now we need an DNS Entry, that points to our Exchange-Server, internal and External. External ist Works.

When i add a new zone to our dns ans make an A_record that points to our exchange, it works too ... BUT ...
 All other resolution to external hosts unter ( now cannot be resolved in the internal network.

How can i Configure the DNS that only the were resolved internal, all other requests has to be forwarded to the external Nameserver??

you need to create a zone called '' and create a blank A record with the IP address of your server.

that will allow you to internally resolve and all other requests for will go to the external resolution.
