This isn't a DNS issue at all.  All DNS does is map IP addresses to names.  VLANs operate at frame layer. VLANs are be used to separate LAN traffic.

A IP address can be on a VLAN1.  If the NIC is configured to look for traffic on VLAN1 it will see it.  Otherwise it will simply be discarded.

If you have traffic on VLAN1 and want it to go to VLAN2, you have to have some means of routing between the VLANs
