But how will the provider know which IP address to direct its queries to?


It's your provider who manages the DNS for your domain. Therefore, it's important that he/she registers your domain in both the forward and reverse zones on their servers. Additionally, you'll require a static IP address - commonly known as a "white" IP address - which the service provider can offer. Don't forget to discuss this with your provider too!
