Arthur, the OP stated clearly that the server is *not* connected to the Internet, so I'd expect pings to all Internet sites to fail?
I'm somewhat more interested as to how a "correctly configured" DNS for this environment would either take 3 seconds to fail, or return an IP address that can't then be pinged. Surely it should fail immediately without returning an address? So I agree with you that the DNS needs work, just not about the symptom :-).
