Default Setting up DNS on Win Server 2003

I have a Windows Server 2003 network. Due to a major failure of an unrelated VOIP system going down I had to temporarily shut off DHCP and the DNS roles.

I have re-enabled the DHCP role, but cant seem to get the DNS role to work properly.

When I run the wizard it asks for the name of the DNS zone but I am unsure as to what it needs. I have tried nameofdomain.local as well as nameofdomain.

The wizard ends without issue but when a client connects it gets a DNS address of but it wont connect to any webpages. I am not sure where its pulling this address from. (I must have set it somewhere on the server, when the sh!t hit the fan with the VOIP system)

When I set it manually on the client to webpages come up.

Like I said its a Windows Sever 2003 AD domain with file server, printer sharing, DHCP, and DNS roles.

Any ideas?
