[Samba] Wrong local DNS responses from samba4

I just updated samba4 to git master from a few hours ago (69b3d1944501f),
and the problem persists.

No, it shows the incorrect record.

The same, incorrect record.

> $ samba-tool dns query corp.example.com aio1 ALL

Sadly, it's also the incorrect record. With the original configuration (dns
forwarder is in smb.conf), it shows:

$ /usr/local/samba/bin/samba-tool dns query
corp.example.comaio1 ALL -U Administrator
Password for [CORP\Administrator]:
  Name=, Records=1, Children=0
    A: (flags=f0, serial=110, ttl=1200)

Any thoughts?

The machine (aio1) is definitely at .171 (not .168) and has been for days,
per the DHCP server logs.

Same situation for the ~10 other Windows 8 clients connected to the AD DC.
