A default installation of Microsoft Small Business Server Essentials 2011 will use a .local domain. It is quite tedious to override this choice (http://titlerequired.com/2011/08/02/installing-sbs-essentials-using-an-answer-file/). Anyone using Ubuntu on such a network has to remove the default mDNS entries from the nsswitch.conf file. Not helpful.

Note that SBS 2011 is a current product, so we can expect there to be many mycompany.local domains in use.
