Can I configure a Windows DNS Server to make a scenario whereby I mask the master/authoritative records like microsoft.com, example.com, contoso.com, etc with my own administered records in the local DNS server having different values?
For example, in my development server environment I want to have a development DNS server to resolve the microsoft.com root domain and some of its secondary domains to private IPs on my LAN, instead of forwarding those DNS requests.
I don't want to actually get into DNS zone transfers or delegation proper because this is not a production scenario, and my understanding is some masters would have to be configured to permit DNS slaves to carry out such tasks. However I want to test by using existing infrastructure and masters, to have something to start from.
This is for academic purposes at the moment. I'm a DNS Server novice so my terminology might be off. If so, I apologize, please extrapolate and answer according to your own experience or point me to answers that might already exist. Thank you!
