Hello, just a quick question.  When assigning a static IP address to a WInndows Server that is going to be a DNS server, in the primary and secondary DNS is it best to assign 127.0.0.1 and then another DNS server IP so that it looks at itself first to resolve any internal request quickly?  Then in the DNS service put a forward IP from your internet host?

For DNS 1 you should specify the IP Address of the server itself and then use DNS Forwarders not a Public DNS Address for DNS 2.

These are the recommendations I follow:

What that comes out to (say with two DNS servers) is:
-server1 pointing to server2 as primary
-server1 pointing to its own IP as secondary
-server2 pointing to server1 as primary
-server2 pointing to its own IP as secondary
-Forwarders configured on both DNS servers to ISP or other public DNS

Yep so:

127.0.0.1
192.168.x.x - another internall dns server

Inside the DNS service - put a forward to ISP host DNS resolver
