is there a way to use split dns for remote offices, but not configuring the asa as a easy vpn client?

So i want to set up a site to site vpn connection between the head office and a remote office. I would like to see dns request for my domain being forwarded to the internal dns and dns request for all others send directly the the remote office internet providers dns server.

I know this is possible when configuring the head pix as a easy vpn server and the remote office as a client.But is this possible using the old vpn style?

The DNS forwarding functionality provided by Split DNS to the DNS server subsystem of the Cisco IOS software is available only for DNS packets that are directed to one of the IP addresses of the router that serves as the DNS caching name server. Split DNS does not support processing of packets intercepted at the data link layer (Layer 2) and then redirected to the DNS caching name server. Following link may help you
