Not true.

Domainbased DFS works. I should also mention that in my single server
environment the AD DC also serves home- and other fileshares. DFS
cannot be managed from Windows with DFS management MMC.

DNS with BIND9_DLZ and possibly internal DNS does not support renaming
AD Sites and move DC between Sites. BIND9_FLATFILE does. The cost is
that you cannot manage hte zone(s) with DNS management MMC,
