The suffixes are something the clients use, that is, if you wanted to resolve something like tony.bob.bobsvpn.com by running "ping tony" or "nslookup tony".

Or do you mean a new zone so clients can resolve the FQDN? Because that isn't a problem, although slightly dependent on whether or not bob.bobsvpn.com will be a Primary zone or something else.

Thanks, adding the suffix at the client gave me the resolution I was looking for.
