This is a question for the NTP project.  It should be quite practical to
have NTP contact Samba in a non-blocking fashion if someone wishes to
make that happen.

See ldbedit.  pdbedit may also work by the time we do a release, but to
change arbitary ldap attributes, use an LDAP editor.

You will need to supply more details than this, preferably in a bug
report.  Please also test against Samba 3.6.0rc1 as we have already
fixed some issues here. 

Samba4's samba_dnsupdate isn't anything particularly special: it's a
wrapper around nsupdate...
