As for the case 110122270441425, I closed it a while back with the answer that it's implementation specific and doesn't affect the protocol. You seem to concur with "MS-DNSP RPC protocol isn't what really interests us at this stage." However, you raise a couple of issues, including a request/suggestion for new document. I am discussing this with the Windows Interop team. I'll follow-up in a new thread.

The MS-DNSP RPC protocol isn't what really interests us at this stage, although it may in the future. We only reference MS-DNSP as that is the only document in WSPP/MCPP that covers these records currently.
We have a DNS server in Samba that replicates with Microsoft DNS servers via DRS. So we need to know how all of the fields in the AD LDAP records that hold DNS affect DNS processing.
I think what we really have is a missing document that specifies Microsoft server behaviour with regards to the following:
- behaviour of the Microsoft DNS server beyond what is in the DNS
RFCs. The behaviour affected by the RANK would be part of this, as
these are not mentioned in the RFCs as far as I can see.
- any special behaviour over ldap for for replication for the DNS
- how a DNS server gets established. By this I mean that if I use
dcpromo to add a Windows DC to a domain, and I tick the checkbox to
say it should be a DNS server, what information does the existing
DC need to provide to allow this new server to be created as a DNS
server? Presumably there is some mininal set of records we need to
setup in Samba for this to work.
- the format of all of the LDAP records in the DNS partitions, and
the meaning of the fields
There are probably other missing pieces, and I don't think they would really fit well in the MS-DNSP document.
