RadiusNT supports "UNKNOWN" proxy. That tells RadiusNT to proxy the
authentication request to the "DEFAULT" RadRoamDomain if RadiusNT
can not find the user locally. The DEFAULT for an unknown domain is
covered in the RadiusNT documentation. Just make sure you enable
the Auth/Unknown option in the RadiusNT Admin.
