Even there are good reasons not to use .local, I think, this doesn't
mean you hit a dead end.

MS uses .local in documentation and examples, too. Of course they say,
that when you use MacOSX, you have to choose a different TLD, because of

I don't think .local is the cause of your problems, if you can except
Macs and mDNS stuff interferences in your network. Also two of your DCs
work like they should and I guess the third had a time it also did.
