    It depends. Most likely niether. Your local DNS will look for the it locally, then go out to the Internet if is not in the zone record. This is how it will resolve (most likely, at least the way I understand it):
    1. Check local DNS
    2. It will then go to root DNS server
    3. root DNS server sends request to .com DNS server
    4. .com DNS server sends request to DNS server that can resolve name (most likely a google DNS zone)

    hope this helps
