Description (partial)

Invalid domain names such as '.example' are not supported in the split-dns configuration under group-policy on an ASA and can yield unexpected results. 

ASA allows configuring a domain name in split dns entry which can cause inconsistent behaviour.

split-dns value cad.stage .prod
split-tunnel-all-dns disable

So in the above example, '.prod' is not a supported configuration construct.
The feature may not work as required.

ASA version 9.8.2, or others affected by CSCvu35319.
Tested with Any Connect version 4.6

configuring an un-supported domain name like, ".abc" in split-dns configuration.
