You'll need some way of the NT server in the DMZ to actually know that
there is a domain; if discovery by broadcast won't work, you need a WINS
server for the DMZ'd NT server to find the PDC on the private LAN.

There's not a whole lot more I can say without knowing more about the
setup inside the firewall...
