Wide area support in Avahi is currently only implemented for browsing - the
way it work is instead of doing DNS-SD over mDNS on the local network, it
does DNS-SD via normal DNS servers on the internet.
You can configure wide area browse domains (default ones)
in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf - note some defaults zeroconf.org and
0pointer.de, you can see these in action if you have this config running and

What exactly are you trying to achieve? If you are trying to publish a service
via wide-area, this is unfortunately not supported by avahi at this time.
There is some interest in implementing this by a developer -- but I have not
recently heard of its status.
