This is for a test home network which has its own DNS servers and such 
which I configure for the RFC 2136 Dynamic updates.

Justin Ellison just mentioned in another m0n0wall email that it should 
work the way I want by default... m0n0wall uses nsupdate which will 
automatically finds the master DNS server for the hosts domain name.  It 
should just work.  I for reasons I can not explain assumed that the RFC 
2136 Dynamic DNS updates were handled by some other program.  It never 
occurred to me that m0n0wall could be using nsupdate.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.
