Best Practice for DNS settings on Web Servers in a DMZmichaelmchaelmimma

Last Modified: 2015-02-26
I have (3) Web Servers residing on our DMZ, all with Publicly accessible web addresses. We are having odd connection issues where they will time out internally and externally, but more internally.

My question is about the DNS settings. I noticed that the person who managed these before me set Google's Public DNS settings ( + as the Primary and Secondary DNS servers. I am not so sure this is correct.

Should be using our internal DNS Servers instead of the Public Google one? We do not have a DNS server on the DMZ.
