When joining another DC to a domain it's advised in the wiki to

"Make sure, that your /etc/resolv.conf contains at least one 
„nameserver“ entry, pointing to a DNS, that can resolve your Samba AD 

Let's assume I have one DC. If I add the following to the second DC to 
be joined.


Am I correct in assuming that when a client requests a DNS query to 
nameserver This DC will attempt to contact to 
resolve if it's listed primary? I would like to have each DC resolve 
it's own DNS queries using Sambas internal DNS. Do I remove the 
nameserver line 10.99.01 after successfully joining or merely switch the 
order? Thanks.
