Thanks for your reply . 

Apparently its my fault I should have made my question clearer. 

Your target is Company X . The ip of the mail server turned to be
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and that when used to do a reverse DNS lookup gave
mail.companyx.com , mail.companyx-fs.com, mail.companyx.com.fs ,
mail.companyxfs.com . As a pentester how would you go about identifying the
actual domain name that is being used internally . 

I am not asking for networking FACTS here,  I am rather asking the
pentesters out there about their past experiences thus I identify myself as
a noob.

I hope this is clearer .

1. Wrong mailing list. This list is about pen testing, not networking 101.
2. Well, think. (Hint: myname.com and myname.name could be the same server.
What about 20 named vhosts, each having the same IP, but serving a different
site?)

Hi all
       I am noob and I am on a self learning exercise. 
                A friend who has a company has allowed to go ahead and
pursue my reconnaissance exercise on his domain. I cam across something
that
I would like maybe anyone to comment on it. What does it mean when I dig a
name for a host getting an ip address and when I do a reverse lookup I get
several names including the one I supplied.  All the returned though
belong
to the same owner as I can see from the domain names . 

Regards
