Please don't mess with source4/dns_server/dlz_minimal.h AT ALL!

Latest ISC bind-9.9.3 is still using "DLZ_DLOPEN_VERSION 2",
so when you properly changed /usr/local/samba/private/named.conf
to use dlz_bind9_9.so, all should work as expected.

I just did a build of bind-9.9.3 - and it's working so far.

But there can be some pitfalls when you build stuff from source.

When you just use ./configure --> make -> make install, bind will
be installed to /usr/local/.
So all init (or systemd) scripts might not work anymore.

From the error you get, my guess is, that you did not de-install  
former bind-9.8.x, so it's still used. (and/or new installed bind
cannot be found). 

What you can do when you want to install into the distro subdirs:
1.) make sure you have a distro supplied version of bind installed.
2.) as root run "named -V". This will list the installed version
    and the build options used.
3.) Create an own script e.g. "configure.your_name" in the bind source dir.
4.) in that new script set all the needed configure options and then
    call the original configure script. (see sample below)
5.) after downloading the new bind source now run ./configure.your_name
    and carefully watch for warnings/errors. Possibly dependent devel
    packages are missing.
6.) after successful "./configure.your_name" run "make"
7.) Before running "make install" (as root) I would remove the old distro
    supplied bind package using the distro tools to make sure that the new
    install is consistent and not using any former stuff!
8.) after "make install" (as root), the new version should be available.
    You can check that as root with "named -V" (or "named -v")
9.) inside a root konsole, you can run bind in the foreground with:
    named -g -u bind_user -d3  
    Note, that the running "bind_user" is distro dependent, some use "bind",
    others use "named". Please check that!
    When bind is starting with the '-d3' debug info, you'll get some info like this:

10.) start samba as usual. Inside that bind konsole you'll see a lot of debug infos...

Cheers, Günter

PS - sample bind configure.tmp for opensuse. This needs modifications for other distros!
(Note - with opensuse i do NOT use the chroot jail! - a different problem)
