I believe that this is exactly what I want. Mail server
"netconsonance.com" is a fiction, currently implemented by host ....

Database is mysql. The gotcha is that the apps we use to maintain
the data only know the fiction (netconsonance.com) and don't know
(and shouldn't need to know) the hostname of the machine currently
implementing the fiction.
I do wish that I could separate the presentation name from the
default realm. I don't really need to change the name presented when
connecting to the server, and having the actual hostname would be
useful for diagnosis. All I really want to change is the default
realm used when querying the backend database.
