I think Windows just clobbers the SOA on the way out. I don't think I've
seen any documentation describe the behaviour in detail either.

As for the missing record, Samba 4.5 should fix the immediate problem of
the actual missing NS record, but currently only using BIND9 DLZ
actually ensures it is used as a useful nameserver.
