In fact i test it and it works the way i describe. ( When squid get an
NXDomain query he look to the next dns in his config)
I just wanna know if it's normal? For me I prefer this : ).

        I think it won't work the way you intend. Your first, public DNS
server will only
        return a non-existent domain (NXDOMAIN) when queried about
internal names,
        and Squid won't fallback to the internal DNS server because
(from Squid's
        point of view), NXDOMAIN is considered a VALID response. It will
do the fallback
        only if a.b.c.7 is unreachable or down.

        Have you tried to get /etc/resolv.conf in the Squid's server
pointing at
        a.b.c.7, and dns_nameservers just a.b.c.8?
