[Samba] Dynamic DNS and bind_dlz

I'm trying to troubleshoot why our workstations have stopped dynamically
registering their ip addresses in our AD using bind_dlz setup. It worked
for a couple of months and now does not. I realized I have a basic question
about how it is supposed to work.

Do the workstations (after getting a dynamic address from the dhcpd server)
contact the AD DC directly with the information? Or does dhcpd register the
address with bind and then bind notifies the DC?

If it is dhcpd -> bind -> DC, then can someone show a sample dhcpd.conf

This is samba 4.4.5 and bind 9.9.
