I will discuss this with Marc and if he agrees, I will update the wiki

When you provision the domain zones are created for you in AD, have a

Samba has a swiss army type tool (i.e. it does a lot) 'samba-tool'
If you run 'samba-tool --help' you will see the base of what it can do.
if you run 'samba-tool dns --help' this will show what you can do with
dns records, I hope you get the idea.

You do not use bind flatfiles with dlz, have a look at the scripts I
pointed you at for a sample bind file.
