    For what it is worth, we do not use a global DNS option. We have two
subnets in a shared network, each with its own parameters.

	shared-network VLAN162 {
	    subnet  netmask {
	        option domain-name-servers,;
	        option routers;
	        pool {          #VLAN162-DYNAMIC
	            allow members of "registered-hosts";
	            allow known clients;
	    subnet netmask {
	        option domain-name-servers;
	        option routers;
	        pool {          #VLAN162-REGISTRY
	            deny members of "registered-hosts";
	            deny known clients;

   The DNS servers that some non-registered Vista clients are seeing are
our main servers, as specified in the main subnet.
