Sounds like a strange policy, but do you mean you cannot have a dns 
server that connects to the internet or just you cannot have a dns server ?

If the former, you should be aware that you do not have to connect an AD 
domain to the internet, you just need the dns server to find the other 
domain machines and the DCs, or in other words, don't forward anything 
outside the domain.
