In Windows Server 2003 domain controller it is recommended that the DNS should be its own IP address, so where should I put the IP of ISP?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You don’t need to put the IP of the ISP DNS server any where. The DNS Server on the domain controller will already know the IP addresses of the Internet root DNS servers which it will use to find the web sites on the internet.

Make sure to install the DNS service on the domain controller before making it a domain controller, and put the IP of the domain controller before making the machine a domain controller.

You can include your ISP DNS by adding them to your DNS configuration on the forwarders tab of your DNS properties.

    You may choose not to have your DNS servers use root hints. In this case, you will need to remove the root hints and use the DNS servers of your ISP as forwarders.
