Not sure how much help I can be, but give this a try - add the -d # flag
to your 'net ads dns ...' command where # can be something up to 10
(more debug output).  This can at the very least confirm the smb.conf
file being read as well as perhaps point you in a better direction.  If
nothing else, posted the somewhat cleansed output here; it may help
others here to see where your problem lies.
