In order for the DNS server to work the workstations must have DNS 1 point to the domain server. Your server needs to have Fowarding enabled to send request not resolved locally to the internet DNS server. See This article for an explaination of why. After your computers are assigned the DNS server's IP by DHCP, log into the dns server and at the command prompt type nslookup it should list itself (the FQDNS name) as the server, change the setting if not. Then do a dns flush and refresh (ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /registerdns) try and ping a computer using its name. Now try and ping the server from a Work station. If the Nslook up is not reflecting servername.mydomain.local you need to set up your Zone file to reflect your server's FQDNS (server.mydomain.local)in the SOA record as the master name server.
