1) How do MacBook Air (OS X 10.7 & 10.8) laptops authenticate against an AD server if they're outside of the office?

2) How should DNS be configured on those remote laptops so they can both talk to the Windows & Mac servers here in the office yet still be able to resolve names on the Internet when not connected to the domain?

Thanks!

If your MacBook Air is a domain joined machine you will have to VPN into your network.

Also if you are able to access internet from inside your network even after you VPN into your network you should be able to connect to the internet

As after VPNing into your private network all the traffic will go to your company's default gateway and not to the ISP, though you will be connected to the internet using ISP but still you feel as if you are inside your domain.
