DLZ module is used to dynamically load the zone (the ones configured
in Samba AD) information. So you cannot have two different sources for
the same zone. Please comment the file based forward zone for domain
(test.cornell.edu). And if you have configured reverse zone in AD,
then comment the file based reverse zone as well.
