Thanks Gémes,

the point here is that whenever the clients login, I see that they have only the windows server as logon server and not the samba4 server:

I always have this:

My Expectation is to have:

but when I switch off the Win Server, I could log into the samba4 server.

I even tried Adjusting the Weight and Priority for DNS SRV Records in the Registry on the Windows server so that the samba4 will be prioritized... but it doesn't help.

Best Regards,

IMHO you can't. Active Directory was designed to provide a round robin 
type failover, and thus each AD controller (in a site) is equally 
probably chosen by clients.
