Restarting doesn't help (incl. named):

# /etc/init.d/rc.samba4 start
Starting samba4:                                           [  OK  ]

# samba-tool dns add marc3 A -Uadministrator
Password for [MUC\administrator]:
Record added successfully

# host -t A
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

# /etc/init.d/rc.samba4 restart
Shutting down samba4:                                      [  OK  ]
Starting samba4:                                           [  OK  ]

# /etc/init.d/named restart
Named beenden: .                                           [  OK  ]
Named starten:                                             [  OK  ]

# host -t A
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
