I suggest you configure your freeipa installation to use a subdomain
like: ipa.arc.nasa.gov or similar and install the embedded freeipa DNS
server for your tests so that you "own" that zone.

It will be visible only to your server, so you don't have to worry about
"polluting" the organization DNS namespace, unless you actually ask for
being delegated such zone :)

Use your regular DNS servers as forwarders, and configure
the /etc/resolv.conf file to point to
It will make your life much easier.
