From manual page:

Clarification is desired to make it clear to me what happens if the domain argument is not passed to this function.

If I set session.cookie_domain in a php.ini file, will it come into play?
If I leave it blank, will php use a variable like $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"]?

Having looked at the source code setcookie() doesn't appear to set the domain unless one is passed to the function, this can be tested by executing this simple script:

setcookie('testing', '123', time()+60*60*24*30, '/');

    [0] => X-Powered-By: PHP/5.4.21
    [1] => Set-Cookie: testing=123; expires=Wed, 26-Mar-2014 22:27:59 GMT; path=/

The argument is optional, it's in square brackets so for me I think the documentation is fine (just my opinion though!)
