Exchange 2010 Disjointed Namespace Help

I am preparing for an Exchange 2010 installation (existing Exchange 2003 environment).  Something I'm really confused on is this Disjointed Namespace issue.  I understand the concept, and judging from this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676377.aspx?t=exchgf1 I have determined that I am in Scenario 3.  My Netbios domain and my DNS domain do not match.

What is confusing me is how do I resolve this.  All the resolution steps in that article, and in the Exchange Server Deployment Assistant, seem to focus on Scenarios 1 and 2.  There are no steps for clearing up the Netbios / DNS conflict.  

Is it a non-issue?

Do I need to rename my Netbios domain?

I've run through that wizard.  It offers a two-step solution to fixing a disjointed namespace.  But both of those steps appear to be DNS Domain-only resolutions.  They don't touch the issue of Netbios and DNS domains not matching.

For example, my netbios domain is TEST while my DNS Domain is Testing.com
