This question about DNS architecture raises the question, are the commonly referred to "network services" (DNS, NTP, Directory Services, etc), on-topic?
The name "network services" itself is slightly misleading in my view, and the questions would be more likely to receive a better answer over on ServerFault where you would encounter more "Sysadmin" types who manage these services.
I believe some of the confusion may come from the fact that many IT shops seem to come in one of two sizes:
- Small enough that one person/group of people manage the actual network infrastructure (routers, switches, firewalls) and manage the server side (AD, DNS, Patching).
- Large enough that the network staff don't play in the server staff's sandbox, and the aforementioned "network services" are outside of Network Engineering's control.
(If this would be better suited as an answer under the "What's ON-TOPIC" question, I can move it there.)
