Which does bring up a question. It seems that outside of a feature or
two and some added flexibility that there is, at the core, no
difference between Samba's internal DNS and BIND9_DLZ as there are no
text editable BIND zone files for the AD domain, it's more like BIND
is just the frontend serving up the data on port 53.

So to keep things simple as in the other scenario with the Windows
server, if I plan to use Unbound as the cache for all of the clients,
I can stub-zone to Samba4 for the AD domain records. The Samba4 AD
points to itself and uses Unbound as the forwarder. Seems simpler than
putting BIND in the middle, as I don't know if it's buying me
