how resolve host name from secondary zone DNS

Hello all experts, and thank you in advance

I have host A roles = DNS, AD, domain name call ABC . com ;  host name A = dc2008.ABC. com
I have host B roles = DNS, member of ABC domain , host name B = win2003.ABC. com

additional to Host B (DNS) = has 2 zones = 1th zone ABC . com ; 2th zone 123 . KLM .com  

the website 123. KLM . com needs resolved when user type in browser 123 . KLM . com

as of now user using IP address to accessing the website 123 . KLM . com  = OK   ( not able using host name ).

Host B will resolved host name ( 123.KLM . com ) on  browser only when on  host B ( not able resolve on other hosts )

On Host A DNS I have secondary zone copied of 123 . KLM .COM and successfully  when requested updated zone by right click on secondary zone 123 . KLM .COM select "transfer form master" it's seemed working fine.

however it still failed resolve  if I type in the browser 123 . KLM . com , unless I use ip address than it be fine.
DSN "server tab" both DNS servers included ip, and zones running "secure and insecure" transfer on both DNS

I can see secondary zone on Host A , no problem there .

I am missing or did I doing some thing incorrect, please would be very appreciate someone can shed some light

many thanks

You will have to do it on each desktop, you can assign it through group policy or router dhcp option.
