I'm interested to know what you call a half working DNS and also it's interesting to know why you have to occasionally restart samba.

I have a production with 2 DCs, email relying on LDAP for alias and mailbox resolution and I have a script that is monitoring Samba.

The script tells me when it restarts samba, and I think it occurs maybe once every 3 months, I think it's quite ok to call it stable (for the AD-DS part).
But if you can share your problems with us then we can certainly improve the situation.
