Customer request

I have a customer request that goes like this:
Customer wants to query particular outside DNS for a particular domain. 
   He does NOT want to go to this DNS for ANY queries outside that 
domain. (he is using pop mail on a mail server and wants to be dynamic 
addresses for this server as they go up/down all the time)

He cannot use as forwarder as he doesnt want users to be able to query 
for other internet address.   He only wishes to dynamically query ONE 
domain (actually ONE NAME - probably the mail server).

I have a hard time seeing how he can pick up an external DNS NS unless 
he manually configures a static IP for the domain NS.  It does appear he 
wants to query it (and be the only one able to do so) for a single 
address.  It seems a little ridiculous to lock down the users this way, 
but I've no ideas other than a manual process.  If anyone has a tip, 
they'll have my thanks...!
