Andrew ,

I am shure that  the client *will* access the Domain master due IN NS  over VPN with latest samba 4.x -
due  the domain DFS  do only work - if the IN NS  exist for the samba Second DC .

secondly DC must be autorative DNS for the domain -  There is still an BUG in the soa -  marc know it.

This is one of my reasons why i asked my Questions to you to make shure that nessary DC dns entries exist.
