Does the replication between the DCs work? What is the output of
# samba-tool drs showrepl

Are you sure, that the internal DNS was used during joining?
# samba-tool domain join ... --dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL

Here you are asking the DNS on the windows host to resolve the query. 
Not your samba DC and it's DNS

> OR
>      host -t A testhost.dotest.com <http://testhost.dotest.com> samba_srv_ip

Could it be possible that the output of this command is ok, because you 
specified other DNS servers in your /etc/resolv.conf, than the one on 
which you setup the additional DC? Then the reply was from the other host.
