I'm not familiar with your setup, but what that option expresses is for what domains the SylkServer instance would act as the authoritative XMPP server. So, for sip2sip.info, for example we have SIP infrastructure in place and our SylkServer is configured with domains=sip2sip.info, and the proper DNS records are published. This setting is required so that SylkServer know what traffic he is supposed to handle. So, if you have a XMPP account in jabber.org and contact a sip2sip.info user, SylkServer will handle it, but if you would use any other domain which ended up on the same machine, SylkServer would reject the traffic. I hope it's clearer now :-)

> As it stands this list would need to include all the SIP domains that the source XMPP users might want to connect to - is that correct?  I can see that it might be useful to be able to force validation of source and target domains (from a lock-down point of view), but should these be an optional configuration items defaulting to false?.

You mean outbound_proxy, right?

Check my reply, if your resolver cannot reach sip2sip.info to validate proper NAPTR record resolution we fallback to Google's nameservers automatically.
