It sounds like you set a split brain DNS configuration.

Why would you change the cache file ? The forwarders listed in the InternalDNS
server is all what you need to resolve external names. It is up to the
ExternalDNS box to contact the root servers in turn.
You could even set your InternalDNS server as slave, as well, to prevent it from
contacting the root servers.
