First and foremost, this is your domain, so you can do what you want 
with it, but I wouldn't use anything that didn't rely on the dns info 
stored in AD. I would also point out, that website is not a Samba or 
Microsoft website and as such I cannot recommend using it.

If you want to use it, you will have rely on help from the page you 
linked to.

If you use the internal dns server, or better still, Bind9 dlz, you get 
(just like Windows) multi-master dns with dns info replicated between 
the DCs. You will not get this with the setup you posted, in fact, you 
may get a single point of failure.

This is my opinion, yours may differ.
