You're both right, and we do indeed use sites.  The difficulty is that it's
pfSense, not a Windows client :-).  So, I'm dealing with DNSMasq forwarding
domain-override DNS requests to a local DC, which then returns ALL of the
existing DC's.

Since I can't manually override the /etc/hosts file, I ended up adding the
multiple entries as "host-records" as an additional option to dnsmasq,
which then round robins over my new entries before forwarding additional
domain-override requests.  So I'm directly substituting the query results
instead of trying to have the upstream forwarder do it for me.  It works
for me.

Thanks,
