A good to know, some versions of samba, i dont know which do have this problem also if u use bind9_dlz. 

So, my question to the readers, if you use samba4 DC with bind9_DLZ and you have 2 or more DC's, check all you zones of you have also the same number of  NS servers. 

I know from my install, i had only 1 DC as NS record, i manualy added the second the zones.
