I'm pretty sure it fails because it simply isn't implemented.
The internal server is designed to handle exactly the minimum required
for a small domain that needs to just work. We may add features of
course, but it isn't a feature war with BIND: The bind9 plugin is
provided and fully supported because it makes not sense to reimplement
everything from BIND in Samba.
