You don't need that line. Samba start the required services for AD 

Only if you use BIND_DLZ instead of the internal DNS, then you need it 
(to tell Samba not to start the internal DNS). But for that, following 
is enought:

server services = -dns

If I compare your 'server services' line with the one I have my four 
DCs, yours have 'smb' and mine instead 's3fs'. That's the only 
difference (byside the 'dns' because I use BIND_DLZ). Did you replaced that?

But I think your problem and the note about server services should go to 
the FAQ. I'll put it there later.
