As long as you know the IP OpenDNS will return, it goes about like this:
As for "forward the client," that's a matter of the client software,
so it only does something useful if the DNS request was via a web
browser (returning your intranet site's IP for a request made from a
mail/FTP client won't help anything). I imagine you probably know that,
but your wording was curious.
