But how do you do that if the internal and external views are on 
different servers with completely different IPs?

I ask because now you're back to the same issue, just at the parent 
domain:  How does the net zone delegate to different example zones 
depending on if the client is internal or external.

I don't see any options that avoid anycast.

Please elaborate on what you mean by "split view" hear.  I'm used to 
"split view DNS" being tantamount to what I would use views for.  Which, 
as previously stated, won't work in this case because the different 
views are hosted on different servers.
