Looks like I'm probably right.

I just dcpromo'ed a Windows RODC into the environment and it didn't add 
entries into gc._msdcs.

If I comment out:
#A gc._msdcs.${DNSFOREST} $IP
#AAAA gc._msdcs.${DNSFOREST} $IP

then it works, though I still get an error if I don't specify --all-names:

# samba_dnsupdate --all-names

# samba_dnsupdate

What should I do about the b9_putrr error?
