I am seeking advice for URL branding in our company. In DNS we have  Our primary intenal DNS zone is oldcompany.corp.tld. Our public namespace is (Old company because it is the name of the company prior to acquisition).

I have a team of developers who wish to brand internal URLs for internal applications to something like that would match up with our external namespace (and company name).

Could it cause problems for internal users having a forward lookup zone with a namespace the same as our public facing namespace? Is there a better way to accomplish this?

Another potential issue is we plan on a complete Active Directory redesign next year. I don't want this to complicate that project. That project I do plan on using a sub domain of our public namespace.

Thanks in advance for the replies.
