Sure it should work. But its really not your DNS that will point to your internal IP but rather you need to setup routing tables to route the requests to your internal IP within your LAN. Your DNS needs to point to the actual IP though, then the router forwards the requests internally.

What? Not sure what you mean. You'll need to make your DNS server most likely as a router as well, if its connected and sharing the connection from your ISP, etc. Then setup IPTABLES to route the connection and requests, etc.
