Yes, I think you are right, the dhcp server cannot do it on its own, but 
once you understand that, it is easy to get the dhcp server to run a 
script to do the updates.

What I thinks is happening is, dhcp gives the machine an ipaddress and 
then tries to update samba4 and fails, the windows machine then tries to 
update samba4, it succeeds with the forward zone but doesn't even try to 
update the reverse, but to prove just what is going on, we will need to 
see the logs.
