My question is conceptual one about DNS Suffix search list. Recently I was reading that DNS Suffix list seach is used for multi domain environment where computers can be member of multi-domains so that before client sends the dns queries to dns server , it can adds DNS suffix in order to netbios name of the computer.

I didn't understand this. First of all, how a computer can be a member of different domain simultaneously. In brief, why do we need to use DNS Suffix list search

Thanks in advance
