I simply created an exact replica for each entry I've found except under 
pdc, which should be unique.
This records should have been created at join, however I've just set up 
yesterday a test domain where joining two RC3 instances was working (DRS 
wise) perfectly today I've joined a RC4 install to them and had to 
create all the dns entries by hand, and event then DRS is still not 
working (from the newly joined DC to the other two) :-(
