Hey Cristian:

This sounds exactly like the issue I had, documented in:

When computers are first joined, it appears as though samba sets *static*
DNS entries for them, even though their IPs are likely to change.

I haven't yet had a chance to check the proposed fixes (either
deleting/updating the entries via the Windows DNS console, or setting each
client to update their DNS).

The DNS settings is called "Register this connection's addresses in DNS"
and looks like:

Not sure if this is a bug -- seems odd, since many clients are DHCP
