It doesn't. That would involve sending more than one query to the
upstream nameservers for each received query, which is difficult to do.

If your hosts were running Unix/Linux, I would suggest just putting the
relevant domains into /etc/resolv.conf on each host, then the host will
do the correct queries. Since they are running Windows, you will have to
do the Windows equivalent. I'm pretty sure it exists.
