Also keep in mind, if you use the DNS Forwarder service that the DNS 
will show up as the firewall LAN address when you check the IP settings 
of the machines that pull DHCP.  If you don't use DNS Forwarder, then 
the raw IP of the DNS server will be sent to the DHCP clients and those 
will show up in your DNS list for the machines.  Either way, both should 
work just fine provided that you also do what Carsten suggested as well :-)
