New added DNS entries are not resolveable

I played around with DNS to isolate the issue, why I have problems with a 
second DC whose name can't be resolved after joining: It seems that if I add 
entries to the DNS (with the windows DNS tool or samba-tool), I can't resolve 
them (but they are there visible e.g. in the windows DNS tool).

# samba-tool dns add marc A -Uadministrator
Password for [MUC\administrator]:
Record added successfully

[root at Test_DC1 local]# host -t A
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

Other DNS entries resolve fine:
# host -t A has address

# host -t SRV has SRV record 0 100 389

We are running rc4 + bind 9.8.4.
