Creating DNS pointers for different domains

I currently have two separate Domain control servers on two different subnets one is a Windows 2003 server and the other is a Windows 2008 Server. I can communicate between servers using IP address but not by DNS name, is there a way to create A record in DNS that will let one domain know of another server in the other domains DNS? I tried to create an A record but it keeps forcing the FQDN of its on domain not allowing me to create the host with the ad.suffix of the other domain.

Thanks

If you want one domain to know the records of another domain, there are several options including
- adding the zone as secondary and allowing transfers
- setting up a delegation
- setting up a stub zone
- configuring a conditional forwarder

If you want only the single record for the other DC to be resolved, then you can do the following:
- create a new primary zone, give it the full name (FQDN) of the DC you're trying to reach
- create a new A record in that zone, leave the name blank, and point it at the IP that you use to reach the DC.

I created record in the reverse lookup zone but when I reference the DNS name resolves to the outside DNS.
