I need to apply a different policy (specifically a different order for determining the best server) for www.test.com doman as opposed to my other domains. I have a global policy defined. How can I achive this

There are two level of policies available which you can use:- global and host-level policies.
The global policy and the host-level policies are two independent policies, so each one is a self-contained policy
You have three domains:
The default global policy has the metric-order containing a set of metrics:
<some other metrics>
By default, each of the above domains will be associated with the global policy. Now you want to change the metrics and metric-order only for domain www.test.com- say you want the metric-order to be geographic followed by tie-breaker. you can either change the global policy but this will also affect the other two domains or you can configure a host-level policy with the metric-order geographic tie-breaker and attach it to www.xyz.com.
So host-level policies give you added granularity to control metrics, their order and other parameters at the domain level and will be defined similar to global policy.
Hope this helps
