Network card DNS address for Windows Server

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.

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
Yep - that'll do just fine.
