That's good news.
We too always get that message when joining Linux machines to the
domain. I think it can be ignored as afterwards, the machine which has
just been joined works fine, even if it get's its IP via DHCP. The
message appears whether or not the record has been added to the DNS. I
think that it has something to do with bind as the error message does
not appear when using the internal DNS server.
