Can I use DNS Proxy to Host External DNS?


I'm going through my first ever configuration of a PAN-500, coming from the McAfee Secure Firewall (Sidewinder). Our current firewall authoritatively hosts our external DNS records pointing to our MX records, etc, and I wanted to know if it's possible for the DNS Proxy module on the PAN-500 to do the same thing.

Thank you.

According to the manual you can setup static-entries in the dns proxy. However I dont know if these entries can work on their own without a real dns server on the other end.

I mean if the client can query the PA ip (or ip on the other side of the PA) to get a reply from the PA itself without any real dns server (resolver or authoritive) on the other end.
