No such things exists, because there is no provision in the PPP
protocol to communicate domain name informatin. The only way to get
this information is to use DHCP. Newer clients (WinXP, MacOSX) support
DHCP INFORM, which allows the client to gather information (like
domain name) without using DHCP itself to get an address. The IOS DHCP
server supports DHCP INFORM.
