Hm... but that's what I did use in the first place.

Just using "MYDOMAIN" gives me an UnknownHostException as well
as using "MYDOMAIN-MGSFT-TEST" (not sure if there is such
a fully qualified name in the NetBIOS world at all. But I've
seen such syntax before)

Only using "MYDOMAIN.MGSFT.TEST" seems to connect to the machine.

What wrong here?
