I think he's saying that the reverse DNS is working correctly, but the
forward DNS is not working.

Anyway, it looks like he has those patches already, since he's running

If you're using the DLZ module, are you still supposed to run samba_dnsupdate?

Daniele, it looks like bind is not even trying to do anything with the

properly in Samba.  I haven't tried setting this up, so I don't know
what might be wrong with it.
