Samba 4 internal DNS question

Hi Marc.

When I attempt to do a zone transfer using dig, I get a "Transfer failed"
response and no information.  So it appears, at least with my Samba 4
internal DNS setup, zone transfers are not allowed.  Which is sort of what
I would expect from a security standpoint.  Although I'm not at all sure
how I would configure the internal DNS to allow it.  (My test environment
is in a lab setting, so I don't have to worry too much about "outside"
influences :-)
