It doesn't say that any more ;-)

This is from my DCs

root@dc4:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search samdom.example.com
nameserver 192.168.0.6
root@dc4:~# hostname -i
192.168.0.6

root@dc3:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search samdom.example.com
nameserver 192.168.0.7
root@dc3:~# hostname -i
192.168.0.7

And everything works!
