Anything prepended is a function of settings in dns-tab ( or 
configs given by DHCP-server). So that is a non-issue.

Using a subdomain is even better since it will give your
wintendo machines a possibility to discriminate between 
your internal machines ( that they can access freely) from the 
"outside" machines ( located on your DMZ and beyond). All this
without needing any tricky "split-dns" tricks.
