We have a SBS 2011 server.  I was wondering how hard is it to change the Internet Domain Name.  It is running DNS, IIS (for OWA, REMOTE & ACTIVESYNC), Exchange Server.

Do you mean the name of the SBS domain ?

Domain rename on SBS is NOT supported - you have to re-install

Not the internal domain but the external internet domain name.

Simply running the Internet Address Management Wizard allows you to change the Internet domain name, if I'm not mistaken.

Easy:
Buy your new domain and do your external DNS settings:
On SBS console Run the :"Setup your internet address wizard"
Hope that helps,

I thought that I'd have to make changes to the IIS and Exchange Server as well?

That's one of the main selling points of SBS: the wizards do most of the dirty work for you.

Does that cover the MX & A type records stuff as well?

If you've got your domain registered with one of the providers that Microsoft has partnered with and you tell the server (within that wizard, I believe) to configure the domain for you, it will create the necessary public DNS records.  You'll have to provide the credentials you'd use to log into the registrar's DNS console.

In my experience, this is rare; most of the customers I have worked with end up creating the records themselves.

Just get your ISP to setup 2 x A records for mail."your new domain" and remote."your new domain" and point them to your external  IP address and an MX record pointing to "mail.your new domain".
Fairly simple.
