     if smb.conf only bind eth0, then the internal DNS didn't listen on  I have checked that. i am just worried about bad things when it
is not listen  on

    and in my case I think dnsmasq in not related to samba AD DC. it is
running as a dns cache,  forward to it is just like forward to another dns

     I think i can run dnsmasq at an network interface which is not related
to samba to make it absolutely safe, but I don't know if it is really
necessary to do that. everything seems works fine...

    thanks again for your information!
