1) What is this? What is it for and do?

2) What is this? What is it for and do?

3) Paying more attention to domain-name-servers, but what does this mean? Does it mean it applies to *EVERYTHING* -- literally all subnets and pools specified in this file?

4) And what is this? :?

5) I think here it gets specific about different subnets or ranges. Can I specify domain-name-servers for each range like I did here? Or would that be an invalid move?

If it is a valid move, then it should do something like this (as far as applying DNS to specified range):

* Apply DNS 208.67.222.123 and DNS 208.67.220.123 to XXX.XXX.2.0 through XXX.XXX.2.254, to XXX.XXX.3.0 through XXX.XXX.3.254, to XXX.XXX.1.50 through XXX.XXX.1.112

* Apply DNS 8.8.8.8 and DNS 8.8.4.4 to XXX.XXX.0.50 through XXX.XXX.0.254

Is this correct? :(

6) What is this little piece?
