DNS MX record query problem

I have a problem resolving mx record for madronafoods.com on my dc.
 nslookup return
Name:    madronafoods.com
Address:  62.0.58.94

while when try mx record
set  type=mx
DNS request timed out. for madronafoods.com
    timeout was 2 seconds.

I can't change my primary DNS as it has to be my DC
when I try nslookup on another ISP  I am getting correct mx record
Non-authoritative answer:
madronafoods.com      mail exchanger = 0 madronafoods-com.mail.protection.outlook.com.

this problem Is only with a single domain. and my email server can't send and email without resolving mx.
what can case such problem what is the simple way to resolve it without changing hosts file manually and changing primary DNS server (has to be my DC)

Create an MX record in your DC's DNS database.

Jan SpringerCommented:
The real question is:  why can't your DNS server find an MX record?

Install dig for windows.

dig madronafoods.com mx @IP_of_your_dns_server

and

dig madronafoods.com mx @IP_of_your_dns_server +trace

What are the results?

Without knowing the IPs of the root servers that you're using, when is the last time that you've updated that list in your internal DNS server?

i updated all roots few were wrong , however I still have  same problem with resolving mx for madronafoods.com

Jan SpringerCommented:
Are you going any forwarding with your DNS to another server?
0
 
leop1212Author Commented:
yes.
 it am forwarding to my ISP DNS ns1.hvdata.net which is my ISP dns and I also tried first forward it  to 4.2.2.2 still same results.
when I use 4.2.22.2 on my ws as primary dns  it resolves mx for madronafoods. fine but not on my local DC or local net  which points to my local DC dns.
0
 
Jan SpringerCommented:
Have you restarted DNS on your dc to flush the cache?

Because, unless you have the domain name configured internally, it should look up the correct information.

Can you do another dig +trace for me?
0
 
leop1212Author Commented:
i flushdns and restarted DC still no change.
looks like same results on both dig commands

That's odd.  Can you resolve www.madronafoods.com?

Are you internally resolving outlook.com?

What do you see with a:

    dig madronafoods.com ns

i only have problem with a single domain. How do I manually add mx record for an external domain, to my internal DNS server
0
 
Jan SpringerCommented:
You'd have to have all of the records for that domain and you'd also have to stay on top of any changes.

With the problems that you are experiencing, is it possible that you have this domain configured and the information has changed?
