Okay we have domain called Olddomain.co.za, and in that domain we have a internal web server running our website called www.newdomain.ac.za
Now we are busy doing a domain migration to newdomain.ac.za, so in olddomain.co.za i have a secondary zone for newdomain.ac.za and zone transfers to the newdomain.ac.za, also i have a trust setup between the 2 domains.
Now when i do this setup i can no longer access the www.newdomain.ac.za website on name internally, but can still access it on I.P.
From outside the network
i can access it on name, only on the internal Lan i cant access it on name, how ever if i delete the secondary zone and zone transfer it works again.
Do you guys have any suggestions for me to do to DNS so the user's can access it with the trust in place.Oh and this is on windows server 2008.

its very confusing to read what your real problem is. If its a DNS issue, you need to make sure that a request for a name can follow a path until it resolves to an IP address on a name server. In the case of migration, there might be some old records there, with a high TimeToLive, which causes name requests to be made against the old name server. You can use nslookup to query which server, serves which records.
If its a domain issue, then you need to insure that the name resolution is working, without that, your domain will not work properly.

I suggest you log on to any DC/DNS server and test the command dcdiag/test:DNS and search for the errors. If any? Based on the errors troubleshoot your DNS sever issues.
Also thorough checking of event viewer also help us to get some clues.So check DNS related events and post here again. If any?

Thanks for all your advise.
I got it fixed, my reverse look up zone's was not reconfigured properly for both domains, after i corrected that it worked properly.
