Oh, so the samba service actually implements the DNS protocol?  (ie., you
don't need to run a separate Bind process?)  I don't remember seeing this
in the HOWTO, but I've been distracted by a bunch of other stuff recently

I am also working on migrating my development Samba4 server to either
Fedora 16 or CentOS 6.2, so either of those will support the newer version
of Bind without having to update that package manually.
