I do not dare teaching how to set up DNS - but as the result
you want SRV records for codasrv (2432) and codaauth2 (370) UDP ports,
pointing to your corresponding Coda fileservers and Coda authentication
servers, usually the same hosts.

No, you do not need to configure your clients as "realm belongings".
They do not belong to a realm, they can access any Coda realm in the world
simultaneously - they find the corresponding servers via DNS records.
The option above is going to be mostly ignored, though being harmless.
