You could see if your server has an entry in /etc/resolv.conf (note it is not /etc/resolve.conf) for other nameservers to add in to your clients list.

Of course, if your primary nameserver rejects the name, it may not try another. I've never tried this, so no promises!

I realize that Dynamic DNS are good, I have one running on my server at home but will they work for intranets? None of these IPs are external IPs, they are all internal to the work network.
