DNS is running just fine.  Otherwise I would not have gotten answers on the first good query.

# ps -ef | grep named
named    9313    1    0    13:36 ?        00:00:00    /usr/sbin/named  -u  named

And that last netbiosname style command gives this error:   

    # /usr/local/samba/bin/samba-tool dns query COMPANY company.com @ ALL -Uadministrator%HIDDEN
    ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (-1073741772, 'NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND')

        dns_conn = dnsserver.dnsserver(binding_str, lp, creds)
