If you have a Samba domain, you should use DHCP to do so.  Samba (as 
far as I know) knows nothing about FQDN's.   isc dhcpd.conf:

# ad-hoc DNS update scheme - set to "none" to disable dynamic DNS 
ddns-update-style interim;
ddns-ttl 1;
one-lease-per-client on;

Zone include

        ddns-updates on;
        option domain-name "mydomain.xxx";
        ddns-domainname "mydomain.xxx";
        ddns-rev-domainname "IN-ADDR.ARPA";
