New added DNS entries are not resolveable

Just some more things I found out: "samba-tool dns query" returns the entry. 
But tools that doesn't query the LDB directly like "host" or "nslookup", 
doesn't find it:

# samba-tool dns add marc4 A -Uadministrator
Password for [MUC\administrator]:
Record added successfully

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

# nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN

# samba-tool dns query marc4 A 
Password for [MUC\administrator]:
   Name=, Records=1, Children=0
     A: (flags=f0, serial=24, ttl=900)

Bind-DLZ doesn't seem to find the new added entries. Existing older entries 
(don't know from which date) are resolved fine.
