It's been a while since I have messed with Novell DNS to any extent. I have done this with MS DNS.

We use lawson.k12.mo.us for our internal domain. We are adding lawsoncardinals.org for all of our external domains.

If I ping filr.lawsoncardinals.org, I get no response internally and it's using the external IP. Everything works fine externally for filr.lawsoncardinals.org and using our old domain name, both inside and out.

Not sure what I'm missing.
