DNS Add company external zone to internal server

We have AD integrated DNS.  We are in the middle of moving our data center.  Our external domain is company.com.  Our internal domain is company.local.  My manager wants me to add a zone in our internal DNS for company.com.  
They want to add static A records and aliases where they IP changes as the data center migration progresses. The trouble with that is the outside names will not resolve inside. I have root hint servers and forwarders in DNS.

I was told to add conditional forwarders for the zone.  When I add the zone first and then try to add conditional forwarders I get "Cant add forwarders - Zone already exists"  When I add the forwarders first I can't add the zone.

I'm obviously not a DNS expert so I would really appreciate all the help I can get.

Sadly, you can't do that. You'll need to manually set up all external IPs in your internal DNS zone company.com.

I was afraid of that.  I guess that is what I will have to do.
