Assuming your AD domain is named mydomain.local and your registered Internet domain name is mycompany.com, your SBS 2008 server should host the following forward lookup zones:

mydomain.local
_msdcs.mydomain.local*
remote.mycompany.com**

It should also host a single reverse lookup zone corresponding to your internal IP address range.

* The _msdcs.mydomain.local zone does not exist in all environments; sometimes it appears as a folder named _msdcs inside the mydomain.local zone.

** This zone's name may not begin with remote if you configured the server to use a different public host name (which is done in the Internet Address Management Wizard, I believe).
