If you are having trouble with forwarding packets via Samba, then don't
forward packets via Samba.  Either use BIND9 and the DLZ module, or on
another IP use BIND9 as your DNS server, with a zone of type 'forward'
pointing at your Samba DC.  You don't have to make Samba's internal DNS
server the choke point regarding DNS for your whole network if you are
having issues.
