DNS Forwarding/resolving for a specific host

I have a DNS question about resolving a host.

We host our domain (ourdomain.com) internally and forward to DNS
Servers on the DMZ for other domains we cant resolve - yahoo.com,
google.com, outsidedomain.com, etc. However, a unique request has come
up. We have an application that needs to resolve
specifichost.outsidedomain.com to a specific IP Address while still
resolving all other records for outsidedomain (www, etc.).

Can I set up DNS (Windows 2003 Primary/Secondary zones - no AD
Integrated) to resolve specifichost.outsidedomain.com internally and
still resolve all other records for outsidedomain.com? We may be able
to this on our DNS Servers on our DMZ that we forward to but would
prefer to perform this internally.

Thanks.

Jeff

I may have found the answer. On my DNS Servers, I created a new zone
called specifichost.outsidedomain.com and created a blank A record in
that zone. Now, when I ping specifichost.outsidedomain.com, I receive
the IP Address of the blank A record I created as well as resolve other
records at outsidedomain.com.

This is exactly how to do it.
