[Samba] [Samba 4rc1] no ping to domain clients

I'm using samba4 rc1 since 2 months as PDC with samba4 internal DNS.
Everything works but i can't ping domain clinets via its names.
Clients are named as

stacja00X.localdomain where X is station number. But even on SambaPDC
i can't ping it with for exapmle:
ping stacja003.localdomain or ping stacja003

nslookup says that there is no host like that. Funny becouse domain
works ok. Is it proper behaviour?

I need it to remotely shutdown computeres with windows shutdown
command, enabled it already via gpo and discovered that it is
impossible becouse samba internal dns does not answer with proper
local ips.

Any idea?
