I have read about this topic on page 296 in Minasi's book "Mastering Windows Server 2008 Networking Foundations" but I still don't understand this suffix. Could someone please explain it in "Dummy" terms? How does this suffix "compete" with a Primary DNS Suffix when an unqualified name is used in, say, a ping command? Thanks!

If a PC is domain joined it gets automatically the DNS suffix of the domain, ex. 'bigfirm.com'.
If that PC also has a connection specific DNS suffix, it gets a second suffix, ex. 'headquarter.bigfirm.com'

Result:
ping test   => PC will first try to ping test.bigfirm.com and afterwards (if first one did not resolve) test.headquarter.bigfirm.com
ping test.bigfirm.com => PC wil only use test.bigfirm.com
ping test.headquarter.bigfirm.com => PC wil only use test.headquarter.bigfirm.com
