[Samba] More on bind_dlz - documentation I have not found

In the shower this morning, I realized that samba's dlz is through its
ldap interface, probably through dhcp. :)
All of that work researching how to set up a dlz database for naught.
This is NOT documented in either:
I have not yet checked any ldap documentation on the wiki to see what it
says, but I suspect a dhcp lease results in an ldap update. Would a
lease expire remove that ldap info?
So no sql service needed on the DC.
Question though, on statically addressed file servers: How to get them
into the dlz zone.
My tld is: htt
My samba dns zone is: home.htt
I will have a master zone for htt, easy enough to setup as a flat zone
file. Did it before.
The home.htt zone only seems to exist in ldap and bind_dlz provides
lookup answers by querying ldap. How is the AD DC handled,
homebase.home.htt? I do not see it in the /usr/share/samba/setup/named*
files. Is it already in the ldap repository?
How do I add my file server, nevia.home.htt? I could always add it to
the htt.zone file as:
nevia.home IN A ......
Can I put cname entries into ldap:
repo.home.htt IN CNAME nevia.home.htt.
Again, I COULD just put this into the htt.zone file.
Then there are MX records for home.htt :)
