If you are sure that you now have all the dns records for both DCs in 
AD, then I would agree that this is probably not the issue (there is 
just the 0.1% chance you are still missing something)

Can your domain members find the DCs ?
Do your domain members have a FQDN ?
Are they joined to the domain ?
What have got in smb.conf on the domain members ?

You may have posted all or some of this before, but lets start again.
