I can not have any of my linux machines connect in any way to the
internet or the company servers. I could install a dns server with no
forwarders as long as it is not on the company network.

So I can have the samba dns listed as a dns server on the clients on
the private network nic and also the company dns servers listed on the
company network nic? I thought that the dns lookup would look to the
first dns server (and if it was the private samba dns server that did
not forward) this would fail then the client machines would not be
able to resolve any internet or company addresses.
