All this is hard to read, which I am putting down to English probably 
not being your first language.

I think what you mean is, if you run Samba as an AD domain, it would be 
a good idea to create a reverse zone and even better, use DHCP to update 
your forward and reverse zones.
If this is correct, have you used an internet website for information 
and if so, which website.

I think this means you cannot get it to work.

Well, it works for me, Devuan (debian 8 without systemd), Samba 4.4.2, 
Bind9 & DHCP
