Don't know whether this is known or has been fixed, already. I see a 
reproducible crash of samba-tool when querying DNS (DLZ setup). I have 
two different VMs. One called samba, which is the AD DC and another 
called samba4, which is my toy for client setup.

Host samba4 cannot be resolved by DNS and it failed to add to the zone 
during the join - but this is a different issue.
