[Samba] Samba 4 DNS name Planing

I suggest you always use .local if only internal use.. 

see RFC 6762, which has been approved and was officially published on February 20, 2013, 
essentially reserves the use of .local as a pseudo-TLD for link-local hostnames 
that can be resolved via the Multicast DNS name resolution protocol.
