Pick whatever name the client wants to use for the local domain, example SBSCLIENT. In the DNS section, append their name with ".local." The name in DNS will read SBSCLIENT.LOCAL.

With the .local appended on the DNS namespace, it won't be published to the Internet root servers.

BFilmFan is right. We use Windows 2000 Server with SBS 2000 installed over the top. We set up a domain which is not accessible over the internet, and it has a .local name: for example our server is servername.domainname.local and the pc's are pcname.domainname.local
