I don't know exactly what DNS queries the windows machines are making,
but you can find out by switching on logging in dnsmasq,

Assuming all the queries are to a particular domain, you can forward
them to the w3k server with something line

server=/domain.that.windows.uses/<IP of w3k server>

Worth a try: if it works post the details back here, as this is
generally useful information.
