Thanks, tho I'm often confused, this wasn't one of those times :)

wrt the second bullet item, it was addressed towards the suggestion of utilizing an open, non infrastructure DNS. You do that and it will confuse users who can't access a server via UNC but hit just fine when their local DNS service goes belly up. This assumes the server is on the other side of a router as I've seen NetBIOS broadcasts resolve on the same subnet.

Security-wise an external DNS resolve could return a bad address for external well known URLs (think Citibank, Amex, et-al.) Just depends on how secure that external DNS is and your trust in it.
