Yest it's ok, this is a bind9 plugin, we might have changed the location

So by default the provision use the file backend for bind, whereas the
dlz_bind9 use a custom bind plugin so that bind can read directly DNS
records in the AD database, maybe if you provide --dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ
(got the information from provision --help) then it will generate other
instructions (if not it's a bug feel free to fix it).
For the domain join I guess we have to add an option to define the
backend with the current valid backend as all of them can have their
interest depending on the use case.
In this case the spn for DNS/xxxx should also be generated.
