Sonicwall DNS Query

I was just wondering if the Sonicwall has a different setting for DNS or something.  We replaced it with an ASA and the only difference is that the Sonciwall is giving out dhcp address on the inside interface as part of its pool and the client's pool address is on the a new subnet.  

The issue that I am having is that when I try to resolve two hosts through Anyconnect, it resolves through the same outside IP.  It doesn't resolve to an internal IP.  It works fine when trying to resolve those hosts on the inside network.  I can ping the dns server on the dmz just fine and also can ping it.

Presumably you push the DNS, the problem us likely the attempt to resolve uses a public domain meaning the request is sent to the public DNS server versus sending it through the DNS server on the LAN to which you are connecting.

Where is the DNS server ?

No, it is going to the internal dns server on the dmz.  on the lan side when at the corporate office, it works fine and when remote, it also points to the same dns server.
Is the hostname that needs resolving us using a public or a private/internal domain?

private IP.
The domain you are trying to lookup is it a private domain i.e. mydomain.local mydomain.priv or is it public, etc.

one thing is whether the IP the user gets is actually authorized to connect to the DMzed VPN LAN IP.
