Incorrect.  Domain Local Groups are visible via any computer running the
User Manager for Domains (usrmgr.exe).  The will not be visible on
workstations by default, as they install the User Manager (musrmgr.exe).  

Luke just had it backwards, the Domain Admins Group is made a member of the
Local Admins Group.  I just looked at it in my copy of user manager on my
workstation here (using both user manager tools).
