Normally you don't need the _ dns entries (there's a few different ones 
besides _ldap) in a Samba setup, they are used by AD to locate servers 
and such.  Where are these errors coming?  Event log, pop up windows, 
etc.?  This sounds a lot like the errors you would see when you are 
setting up an AD server.
