[Samba] Bind Samba4 services on different IPs?

it's honestly not me.  I'm sharing my work with other developers on the SME
Server team and some are having a hard time of letting go of our current
configuration, so I'm having to defend what I'm doing, which is basically
the suggestions you and others have made.   Some on the team are asking why
we can't keep dnscache in front of Samba4 DNS and I'm saying it can't be
done.  They are worried Samba's DNS can't stand up to heavy DNS traffic and
will fall over.

My setup right now looks like this and it seems to be working fine;

[root at testbed service]# netstat -plunt | grep :53
tcp        0      0      *
LISTEN      17485/dnscache
tcp        0      0      *
LISTEN      17479/samba
tcp        0      0   *
LISTEN      17479/samba
udp        0      0      *
udp        0      0      *
udp        0      0   *

I was just trying to cover my bases.
