As Kai mentioned, Samba4 gained IPv6 support this week. 

One thing that won't be automatically updated if you install the new
version is the dns_update_list file in your private directory. You'll
need to add AAAA entries like this:

AAAA                                                     ${DNSDOMAIN} $IP
AAAA                                                     ${HOSTNAME} $IP

as currently it only has 'A' entries. This file is the template that
samba_dnsupdate uses to determine what to add to DNS, so it needs
updating for IPv6, but its not part of 'make install'.

Cheers, Tridge
