[Samba] specify alternative port for samba internal dns server

My goal is for the samba dns server to be authoritative for 'ad.mydomain.com'
but not for mydomain.com.  The dns server that the clients in my domain use
is statically configured to resolve all requests for ad.mydomain.com via
the samba internal dns -- I believe this is exactly what is required for
samba to function ...  Is this incorrect somehow?

A whole bunch of other samba services can listen on other than the default
service port through configuration options ...  Why should the dns service
uniquely deserve an all-caps *NO* with regard to this configurability?
