As far as I know, samba4 can behave _exactly_ like samba3, if you don't 
configure it to use Active Domain. So, it should (as far as I know) 
basically be a up-t-date drop-in replacement for samba3, as long as you 
don't change your smb.conf.

So your dns should not be affected.

But someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
