Shoot! I sent that a second too soon.  Found the following and it worked...

fastcgi_param SERVER_NAME $host;

Subject: php, $_SERVER & server_name

I'm trying to list a bunch of domains under server_name.  I'm doing this
because these domains generate dynamic content based on their name.  it
seems to work fine except for one thing... $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] just
displays the first server_name entry. 

So say we have the following:

server_name 	* * *;

echo $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']; displays * regardless which
domain was entered into the browser.
