You probably need to configure DNS forwarders for your SBS Server's DNS server. http://www.pctips3000.com/how-to-configure-dns-forwarders-in-windows-server-2008/ has instructions on how to do this. Basically you just set up a Public DNS server as a forwarder and any request that the SBS server doesn't have information on is forwarded to that server. This will allow you to configure public DNS for clients that are using the SBS server as their DNS server.
