Use the same domain name for internal and external users.  

Some people like to setup and maintain a totally separate DNS server for
servicing internal requests.  Others use the Split DNS feature of BIND
that answers queries based on where the request originates.  That is if
a query comes from external sources they will get a response that may be
different from an internal request.
