[Samba] One way replication

I joined a Fedora Linux box running Samba 4.1.5 to a Windows Server 2000
domain controller as an additional domain controller with the command:

samba-tool domain join adi.com DC -Uadministrator --realm=adi.com

The messages indicated that this was mostly sucessfull with the exception
of the message:

NO DNS zone information found in source domain, not replicating DNS

If I add a user from the Windows Server 2000 box it shows up on the Samba
box after a minute or two. If I add a new user from the Samba box, it never
shows up on the Windows 2000 DC.

This may be related to the problem I reported yesterday with the subject:
Dns update not working.
I wonder if anyone has sucessfully joined a Samba box to a Windows Server 2000
DC as an additional domain controller. Could the replication problem be due
to the fact that the Windows DC does not have the correct DNS records? Would
adding them manually help?
