http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6762 explains the background to Multicast DNS
(MDNS).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.local is a less technical but very good pointer
too.

Thanks Carlos for stressing this!

Also YaST - the networking or hostname module? - should inform the user in the
same way and point to the SUSE documentation if .local gets used as domain
name.

@YaST maintainers: Don't we have such a warning already?
