(Minor, just reporing)
Hai, i just noticed this in my logs after the upgrade of 4.8.9 to 4.9.4 
[2019/02/27 14:07:43.915993,  0] ../lib/util/become_daemon.c:138(daemon_ready)
  daemon_ready: STATUS=daemon 'samba' finished starting up and ready to serve connections

  /usr/sbin/rndc: rndc: 'reload' failed: file not found

This is a confusing error. 
Which file is missing ?   /usr/sbin/rndc ... checked that and no thats available. 
rndc: 'reload' failed: file not found  ?  which file/location 
I know this part is about the change of /var/lib/samba/dns to /var/lib/samba/bind-dns/dns 
Report this as minor bug? 
Rowland, your patch for the missing folder, thats maybe the one to put this in, your already checking for the new folder.
And.. then i know where i can find that patch again .. ;-)
