[Samba] dns.keytab for Samba4 and Bind9

When provisioning a new domain, samba4
creates /usr/local/samba/private/dns.keytab. What's the best way to
create that file manually, when not provisioning a new domain?

My use case is how one migrates from a Windows AD+DNS to samba4+bind9. I
begin by joining a new samba4 instance as a DC to an existing Windows
domain (so no "/source4/setup/provision"), then getting rid of the
Windows DC and pointing my DNS clients to a bind9 server - which I'd
like to be dynamically updated by samba.
