[Samba] [samba] MS DNS console for reverse zones issue

All DC updated to last Samba 4.4.4, issue is the same.

In the console, addresses are A.B.C.D:
Left panel shows:
\_ C

Right panel shows:
A.B.C.C.D   PTR some-name.ad.domain.tld

DNS entries are correctly added by MS DNS console (host A.B.C.D replies
some-name.ad.domain.tld) but the console can't manage these records.

It's like there is confusion with this sub-container "C", as if it re-added
by MS DNS console to display name in right panel.

> Our AD domain is composed with several Samba DC. Some were running 4.4.4,

> An update of all DC to 4.4.4 is in progress.
> Our MS clients are Windows 7.
> Did someone already faced that issue?
