After much further testing, I 'think' I have the magic incantation to
get this working ;-)
Install samba and Bind9 as normal on the second DC.
Edit /etc/resolv.conf so that the nameserver points to the first DC.
Now join the computer as a DC, once the join is finalised and before
you start bind9 or Samba, edit /etc/resolv.conf again, but this time,
point the nameserver at the new DCs ipaddress or 127.0.0.1 i.e. itself.
Start bind9 and then samba, this should run samba_dnsupdate and add all
the missing records. You can check this with:
host -t SRV _ldap._tcp.example.com.
You should get a result similar to this:
_ldap._tcp.example.com has SRV record 0 100 389 devdc1.example.com.
_ldap._tcp.example.com has SRV record 0 100 389 devdc2.example.com.
edit /etc/resolv.conf on both DCs to use the other as a nameserver and
Finally, restart samba on both DCs
