[Samba] Samba Internal DNS vs. BIND_DLZ

Hi All,

Well, after going in something of the Wrong Direction, I figure on
starting over.

Now: Looking at the docs, ISTM that BIND_DLZ is kind of a PITA. So,
being as I need the BIND (server also is the nameserver for the entire
LAN), and the recommendation is to put the AD PDC in a sub-domain,
anyway, I was thinking:

    Run BIND as normal, but bind it to only eth0

    Set up an eth0:0 (virtual interface), give it a different address,
    run Samba bound to that interface

    BIND would be the auth nameserver for example.com and delegate
    the samdom.example.com zone to the Samba DNS running on the second
    (virtual) interface

    Samba is the auth nameserver for samdom.example.com
