Just be careful of what you wish for, don't come back here saying that
your resolver search path is no longer working ;-)
To explain, lets say you use the above in example.com and configure
clients with 'search example.com another.com someother.com' in
resolv.conf. A resolver looking for 'test', hoping to find it as
'test.another.com' would query the name server for test.example.com
first and get back 'test.example.com IN A 18.104.22.168.'.
