Using a CNAME with a conditional forwarded zone

I have 2 internal Windows 2008 domains that have conditional forwarded zones between them. I have a user trying the access a website on a server in the other domain but, his browser can't resolve the URL for the site. The site is http://redzone1/bzweb1/Kentucky/launch_x.htm. redzone1 is the server name. if I change redzone1 to the FQDN or replace it completely with the server IP address it resolves. Since I can't create a CNAME for the address because the server is being resolved by the forwarding of the zone requests and I can't create a local zone file for FQDN that the server resides in because of the conditional forwarded is there some other way that I can get this to resolve without having to using the FQDN or IP of the server?

As it is not in your domain then the correct way to access it, for a whole host of reasons is technically to use the FQDN.
