Domain names can be presented with a trailing dot. A fully
qualified domain always contains at least one explicit dot.
The rightmost domain label of 3com.net. is "NET"; which does
not start with a digit, so that domain name is OK.
Although "3com.net" would not be a valid hostname; as a DNS name, it is fine.
