[Samba] Samba4 and DNS

I've been reading through the Samba4 docs, but I am a bit confused,
so please forgive me if I have missed anything obvious.
I am trying to setup Samba4 as a Domain Controller for our
department. We do not control our DNS; that is done through campus IT.
All of our workstations (soon to be members of the domain) already
have entries in campus DNS. If I were to submit the contents of the
/usr/local/samba/private/dns/ folder (generated by Samba4's provision
step) to Campus IT, would that work? Would I be missing out on anything
by not running my own DNS server?
I've read about the dynamic changes made to DNS by Samba4, but I
don't know if I need that if my clients already would have entries in DNS.
Thank you for your time; I appreciate it.
