our company has one primary office and several satellite offices. In the DNS settings of our Windows Server 2003 domain controller, I have set up a special Forward Lookup Zone that reroutes certain web traffic directly to one of the web servers in our office so that this web traffic does not have to travel outside the building, over the Internet, and then back to our building again. (All of this traffic relates to a web-based timekeeping and project management package that our company uses.)

Here's the problem: I don't want this Forward Lookup Zone to affect DNS lookups at our satellite offices because it ends up rerouting a lot of their traffic over our inter-office VPN's. Each office has its own domain server and is set up as a separate Active Directory Site. So my question is this: is there a way to restrict a Forward Lookup Zone so that it is only applicable to a single site? It seems like this should be possible.
