Well, not really. SAMDOM is the NETBIOS name of the domain, which we
have to use the "way back" machine to Winblows NT4 to come to grips
with it. So, yes the domain IS example.com, and, if you want, you can
realm = EXAMPLE.COM and have domain = EXAMPLE.
It is also possible to have the domain = EX or TEST and the realm be
EXAMPLE.COM, though I'd not recommend it.
For the most part it is a design issue.
