[Samba] Active Directory dynamic DNS update

I'm trying to work out an issue with dynamic DNS update when I join my 
samba 3.6 client to my samba 4 AD domain.

The issue seems to be the client machine attempting to assert its 
"local" domain name in its DNS update rather than using its hostname 
combined with the AD domain name as, for example, windows would.

Is there a way to tell samba to send dynamic DNS updates for 
<hostname>.<AD domain name> rather than <hostname>.<local domain name>
