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.
