dns is required for tcp/ip name resolution. for example you can have physical internet conneciton but if no dns setting you can't browse the internet.

you put in the domain name for the web page in public dns so others on the internet can find the web page.

Though your ISP provides dynamic ip its public. Your server should be on private ip. Public interface is referred to as wan. Local interface is referred to as lan.

if running AD you configure the server to provide local ip to your workstations

it is normal to configure the first AD server with dns server and dhcp server. though you can run a single server it is highly recommended you have two AD servers for AD failover.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

✔ Best Answer
I would suggest you get a book on Active Directory. It would explain this and more.

In a nutshell you have public name resolution and private/local name resolution.

A public dns server can resolve yahoo.com but it can not resolve your server or workstation names because it has no knowledge of them.

But your local DNS server, which AD must have, does know the local names which is why you need a local dns server.
