I think we've gotten this straightened out for 3.0beta2 (due soon).
No parameter changes involved.

The behavior we've observed in Windows is that a domain member
always maps unknown domains to the Windows domain.  A stand alone server 
maps unknown domains to its local name.  We should now mimic this.
Can you test the CVS code (or wait til beta2 is out) and let us know.
