Can dns server assume domain name from client query with no fqdn

	I have a lot of clients which currently have not domain suffix set.  They just have a hostname.

They are also not in active directory.

fix all this eventually, but for now i need them to resolve a hostname
using dns. The dns server is not resolving the query, presumeably
because it's just getting a hostname with no domain (a NO FQDN)

I want to know if cound the dns server (bind) assume a domain name suffix by default when receiving a query with no domain specified, ans so
convert a NO FQDN to a FQDN

The dns
server is authoritive for this domain, and it's the only domain it

Thanks a lot
