I'm trying to understand the internal DNS backend of Samba 4.1 better.
I've noticed that most (about 30) of our client machines have just an
AAAA record, but not an A record. Only two of the client machines get
both an AAAA and an A record. I'd appreciate some insight on this
- Why do most machines just get an AAAA record, but not an A record?
- Is it safe to manually add an A record for those machines which have
only an AAAA record?

Best regards
