easy actually.

in the iis entry for the real club satyricon website they have an entry for www.clubsatyrion.com, but no entry for clubsatyricon.com.  however, dns is still pointed at the same machine.  so, another iis entry doesn't have any host header information which happens to be the case with bracketmaker.com.  when iis gets request for clubsatyricon.com it looks for an entry with that host header.  it can't find one so it looks for an entry without any host headers set.  it finds one and serves up that website instead.

make sense?
