I have a proxy server at address somename.thisdomain.edu.   How do I get my internal DNS to go to the IP for somename.thisdomain.edu instead of going out to the internet, but prevent thisdomain.edu from always resolving to that IP address.  I would assume that I need to do an A record for somename.thisdomain.edu but what do I need to do for the rest of the stuff on that domain?

As you already suggested, you simply create A-record in your LOCAL DNS:

1.2.3.4    A    somename.thisdomain.edu

IP can be local or public, does not matter. All clients, using your local DNS, will resolve to set IP.
Top-level domain thisdomain.edu will still resolve as before, no change.

If you would like to just test it on your computer, you can edit c:\windows\system32\etc\drivers\hosts file and add that entry there. I use this technique often to pre-test web site for a client before I put it live on internet.
