In active directory, they use the term "Forest" to describe a
top-level domain. The first domain created always has the same name as
the forest (so: e.g. example.com). When adding new servers, you are
given the option of adding a new domain to an existing forest (which
then becomes subdomain.example.com) or creating a new forest. (Or
creating a replica server of an existing domain, of course).
