(mDNSResponder) does exactly that.

Having looked briefly at the available info,
I don´t understand why they have to add DNS
to the mix. On a LAN its not necessary and
on the Internet most people don´t have domain
names. Anyone got a clue for me here?

DynDNS was the first thing that came to my mind.



But DynDNS doesn't have to do anything with service discovery, it only assigns a DNS name to an IP address. The ZeroConf/Bonjour framework is about publishing services and finding all published services of a certain type.
