It's not normal practice, but you should be fine.

Cookies, however, don't like "_"'s in Web servers. :)

one of the DCs will be an intranet server. I found an option on DNS to name check on "non RFC"
will that take care of cookies?

Just give it an additional A record such as www and you'll be fine.
