DLZ module loads the zones from the AD database. If you want to know
what all zones are available in your AD database, you can use the
following query.

  ldbsearch -H /path/to/sam.ldb -b

This command will list all the zones defined in your AD database.
Those zones will be loaded by BIND via DLZ plugin. To check the
messages from named you can start bind as follows:

  /usr/sbin/named -u bind -f -g

It will display all the messages on the console and you should see
lines with samba_dlz that mention the zones loaded.
