[Samba] BIND9_DLZ and Reverse Lookups

Ok.  I'm stumped, so I'm finally going to ask for help.

I'm testing a brand new setup of Samba4 as an AD DC with Bind9 for DNS.
 The problem I'm having is when I create a new A record using the Windows
DNS tools.  I tick the box to create a corresponding PTR record, but it
never does.

I've created the reverse zone.  I've tried using the Windows DNS tools to
create it, and I've also tried samba-tool to create it.  Either way, it
gets created, but no records go in there when I create my A records.

What I want to end up with is a system where servers have static IP
addresses.  I manually add an A record for them and the PTR should be
created automatically.  Clients should get their IP address from DHCP and
an A record and PTR record should automatically get created.

I'm installing on Centos 6.5 with Samba Version 4.1.4-SerNet-RedHat-7.el6.
 Bind is bind-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6.6.x86_64.

I've had 3 attempts to get this working.  The first one, I installed samba
from git.  Bind was from Centos.  For attempt 2 I did the same, but found
some instructions to install Bind from SRPM and update the spec file to use
the gssapi and dlopen options.  Then I compiled and installed.  The final
attempt was using the sernet package listed above and the Bind RPM from the
previous server instance.

I've followed the instructions on the Samba wiki very carefully.  The only
thing I haven't tried yet is to build Bind from source from isc.org.

Does anyone else have this working?  Is it achievable?
