Are you wanting/trying to add machines dns details to AD DNS for

If so, I cannot recommend doing this, the only machines that should be 
in AD, are machines joined to the domain

If on the other hand, you are not doing what I think you are doing, you 
could try scripting around 'samba-tool dns', see 'samba-tool dns --help' 
for more info.
