I've got a Sonicwall TZ 215 that is currently being used as a firewall and DHCP server. Is there any built-in DNS server on this device I can use to map internal site names to IP addresses? I had this when I used DD-WRT in the form of DNSMasq.

No, there is not. It comes with DDNS, but not a proper DNS server.
