What I'm saying is that it should make no difference if you run the
BIND DLZ or the internal server. No idea what DHCP client you're
using, and how that does DNS updates. If your DHCP client is able to
do GSS-TSIG updates against windows, it should be able to do the same
against Samba4. If the DHCP client can't update, you'll have to figure
out how to fix the client side of things.

And I'm saying that it should work the same way, from the server side
of things.
