I would suggest the following, regardless of whether it is through BIND
or not.

Administrator (and any server in Samba must allow the records) needs to
be able to update MX records. Every time I need to add one, I have to
modify private/named.conf.updates for administrator.

TXT records need to be supported (DKIM and many other things use these).

Just my few cents.
