Yes, When you join a DC the A record is added by samba_dnsupdate, a PC's 
records can be added before the 'net ads join', by the join, or after.

I am a bit confused here, is it the Samba DC's dns records that are not

the Fedora packages, that is why they are marked experimental.

Possibly, but it is Samba's code and if it is a bug, you should report 
it to Samba, not Red Hat.

I am not entirely sure it is a bug, it may be, but further testing is
