Thanks.
I split that into two server, the one in LAN is for Private zone and
the other in DMZ is for Public zone, and I can reach the internet
without any problems.
As of the public DNS server, I successfully get it in operation with
the private IP on its interface.

The interface IP of a DNS server is not relevant, as long as it publishes
only records with public addresses, and it can be accessed by a public IP
address that is NATed to it.

Dear Kevin and Herb,

Thank you for your inputs all.
I am now running the public DNS with the DNS proxy service of
Watchguard Firebox X, so that at least I can minimize the security
risks. Additionally, I have set up the primary public DNS in our
network, but the secondary public DNS is hosted by our ISP.

You would still be better served (in the long run)
by moving both back to the Registrar if they offer
the service (most do.)

Most ISPs don't have an interface where you can
change your own DNS if they host the Primary, but
practically ever (major) Registrar works this way.
