The NT-based DNS A-record for host 'www' under 'domain.com' points to an IP address
allocated to IIS on the Windows NT machine. The DNS A-record for 'domain.com' points
to the IP address allocated to our email server. These are two separate machines.
Nearly ALL web sites are hosted on NT. ALL email is processed by our main Linux box.
As a side note, I was assigned the sysadmin role after the fact.
domain.com A --> mail server IP
domain.com NS --> dns1.primedomain.com
domain.com SOA --> dns1.primedomain.com, admin.primedomain.com
www A --> NT server IP
