Great, there's so many differences between the samba 4 setup and the old 
way to setup this things that I just don't stop learning new stuff :-)
I'll give this a try tomorrow, and thanks to Geza I've got both servers 
to load bind and I'll try tomorrow to use your help to get info on bind 
to figure if it's working properly.
I'm now in the process of setting up a new windows DC to demote one of 
the two DCs which is the one that samba is complaining of not responding 
when it tries to do the replica.
Again, thank you all for your help, I'm moving forward to get this 


BTW: sorry for messing the sending address of my last mail.
