This will depend on the existing hardware and software in use by the site. Since they are all in the same internet domain, if they are using Active directory, then I would just make a server at each site a secondary DNS server. Assuming you are using Active Directory, you will have a backup domain controller at each site, and each of those, by default, will serve as a DNS server for that branch.
