Following the instructions here:

In that page there is a link to using Bind as your DNS server, which links
to: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/DNS_Backend_BIND

On that page, it instructs you to populate the DNS server with the command:

/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_dnsupdate --verbose --all-names

Without the "interfaces" and the "bind interfaces only" it will grab the IP
addresses of all configured interfaces and register them into DNS. This,
for my server, querying it for A records returned: (loopback) (br0 - LAN address) (virtual network for KVM) (Virtual network for Docker)

On the br0 interface is of any use to other hosts, so it caused me some
problems and I had to use samba-tool to remove the extra A records.
