    Dynamic vector KML from AGS Server in Google Earth

      I have a KML file that points to my Map Service on our AGS Server.  I have it setup using <viewFormat> parameter in the main KML file to limit what is returned by the server the bounding box/view port of Google Earth(see code below).  I can get the Map Service to return a raster/overlay to the GE client for the bounding box/viewport but I cannot get the Map Service to return vector kml for the bounding box.  The server is trying to return the entire Map Service Feature Layer as a vectorized KML instead of just the features within the display extent.   

      I have submitted a ticket to ESRI and it seems to be confusing to them.  I haven't been able to find anything on this topic anywhere.    You can check out a working example of this functionality that EPA maintains here (select the vector version):  http://www.epa.gov/waters/tools/WATERSKMZ/WATERSKMZ.html  I confirmed with EPA that this is out of the box functionality with AGS Server.  The only difference that I know of is that they are running AGS Server 9.3.1 and I am on 10.
      This is the code in the main KML:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="http://www.google.com/kml/ext/2.2" xmlns:kml="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
        <ListStyle id="Streams_FETCH">

      This is my goal:
