Isn't that what "serverAliasDefault" does?

I'm not sure why I switched from "dom" to "domain". Probably a
combination of confusion on my part, and desperation over the DNS
problems. :)
At some point I gave "domain" a try and it seemed to mostly work, so I
left it that way. The docs don't recommend it anywhere that I saw.

At any rate, I switched back to "dom" and it works now.

Thanks. It's working now.
