Which ones?  You've had a lot of thoughts, recently :)

Er... what?

All I want to do is add (and remove) forward and reverse records to the
DLZ zones in which the AD DC and its clients reside.

I think I found it (dunno why I did not, in the first place):


So, for the example I gave, above:

    samba-tool dns add deepthought.addc.example.com addc.example.com
     somepc A


    samba-tool dns add deepthought.addc.example.com
      0.168.192.in-addr.arpa 10 PTR somepc.addc.example.com

(N.B.: "deepthought.example.com" will also work, for the first
parameter to the "add"s, above, in my case, as deepthought.example.com
and deepthought.addc.example.com are the same thing, in my case.)
