I wouldn't do that, I would get your network dns to forward all AD 
domain requests to the DC's, that way you reduce dns traffic to the DC's 
(no external dns requests get to them) and all the required AD records 
are available. There is also the question of the Windows clients 
updating their own records, if they are on your network dns, then they 
will probably not be in AD.
