You could also do this with BIND.

The first thing I googled for was "bind for internal DNS" and found this
link on how you can setup BIND for a dual-prong approach: providing
internal DNS, but also acting as your DNS to the outside world:

If you decide to go this route, feel free to hit me up with any questions.
I've never taken this exact approach before, but have used BIND a number of
different times for different scenarios, as you know. :)
