What type of DNS server?

If you use the same DNS server for both internal and external name resolution you will want split zone resolution setup.  How you set this up depends on what DNS server you are using and what software, if any, you are using to managed your zones.

DNS server is for internal resolution. We are using Server 2008 R2 and IIS 7.5

It looks like MS DNS's server does not support what BIND calls views.

In BIND you can setup two zone files for the same zone.  Then using ACL's you can tell BIND what zone file to use to resolve the request.  One zone would have internal IP addresses the other zone would have your public IP address.

Looks like you will need to setup a separate DNS server to return the public IP addresses for external requests.
