Depends on if you want to keep running the bind_dlz backend you set up
with the beta or not. If you want to keep running the bind plugin, add
server services = -dns
to your smb.conf globals section.

If you want to run the internal dns server, you probably don't need to
set up anything, but make sure /etc/resolv.conf points at your server's
IP address and not at
