The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides a mechanism for
host configuration. RFC 2132 allows DHCP servers to specify
configuration information for various kinds of name services to be
passed to DHCP clients.  In some circumstances, it is useful for the
DHCP client to be configured with the domain search list.  This is
particularly useful for cases where the client may be configured to use
multicast DNS (mDNS). This document defines a new DHCP option which is
passed from the DHCP Server to the DHCP Client to specify the domain
seach list when resolving hostnames.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
