I have a 2003 server with 25 users, I need to be able to block certain web sites from being accessed from with in the network, inappropriate content and such.

Can I use DNS to direct eg www.xxx.com to 127.0.0.1 with out having to edit the host file on everyones PC every time a new site is added to the block list.

Or am I completely going in the wrong direction?

I would like to do something with the tools provided a opposed to relying on third party software.

You can do this by creating a new zone called www.xxx.com and giving it a fake IP address, however, this is highly inefficient seeing as how there are millions of porn sites out there. Your best bet would be to install some kind of content filtering software such as Websense or Net Nanny, but these tools can also block legitiment websites also.
