Can anyone clarify what the DNS Server Search Order is in a Novell
environment with Windows XP clients? We've seen documentation that says
that the first server in the list is queried, and if there is no response
then the remaining servers are queried simultaneously
us/prjj_ipa_bsmz.asp). We've seen documentation that says that XP simply
queries all DNS servers in the list simultaneously (don't have link).
When we do a sniffer trace we see the first three servers (we use six in
total) in the list being queried simultaneously, which contradicts both
documents. So we're wondering if there are additional settings on the
client that dictate how the query works, or if the documentation is only
relevant in a pure MS environment, or ??? Any backup documentation would
be very helpful.

Thank you.
