You could rig up an NS with a copy of "local zone". That NS will not forward
any queries for that zone since it is authoritative for "local zone". All
local clients query that NS. It will forward queries for any other zone, when
you guys are online. The only issue is to keep your "official" outside
zonefile in sync with your internal file. HTH.
