IP is the machine address.
If you didn't notice, you are adding AND deleting the same system in a short

>    Name=PC03769, Records=0, Children=0
>    Name=PC03773, Records=0, Children=0
>    Name=PC03779, Records=0, Children=0
>    Name=PC03780, Records=0, Children=0
>    Name=PC03781, Records=0, Children=0
>    Name=PC03782, Records=0, Children=0

> There is no IP address.  How can I delete these records using samba-tool?

> [root at larkin26 ~]# samba-tool dns delete EXAMPLE.COM pc0375 -k yes
> Usage: samba-tool dns delete <server> <zone> <name>
