>>>  From my experience, there is no way to do this.  Once an answer is made authoritatively from your internal server, you can't tell it to go somewhere else.  Authoritative is authoritative, and even if you know there's a better answer somewhere else, you're stuck with what you've gone.

It doubles the administrative overhead and maintenance, and can cause some headaches when something is missed, but it's the best solution I've found so far.
