We have lots of domains here, and I've only ever seen one listed at a
time in each of these values.

The CachePrimaryDomain value seems to be the domain where the machine
account lives, and the DefaultDomainName is simply the one that
appears by default in the drop down list on the logon box.  They're
always different on our setup, since we have separate resource and
user domain types.

That's all I know about it anyway.
