I have these packages installed on RHEL5.1 X86_64 SERVER :
$ rpm -qa|grep xen
xen-libs-3.0.3-41.el5
kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.1.4.el5
xen-3.0.3-41.el5
$ rpm -qa|grep virt
libvirt-0.2.3-9.el5
virt-manager-0.4.0-3.el5
python-virtinst-0.103.0-3.el5
libvirt-python-0.2.3-9.el5
and I issued the ifconfig command in dom0:
$ ifconfig
virbr0
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00

xenbr0
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FE:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
inet6 addr: fe80::200:ff:fe00:0/64 Scope:Link

In my opinion,I consider that vif in domU are attached to virbr0 by default since them have the same subnet as virbr0 ,but actually them are attached to xenbr as described in /etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge
