And just for completeness sake...

BIND's split views can be used to accomplish things in a similar manner, 
but is more for the times where your BIND server is the authoritative 
server for your domain.  It allows you to provide different results to 
different clients and to only publish part of your zone to the internet.


You can also use the "create a domain" trick in non-BIND servers to 
overload A records for internal clients.  I've done it at a Windows-only 
site using Microsoft's DNS server software.  It's a useful trick to know 
since it isn't implementation specific.
