Thinking about it, if you do not have the dns zones in AD, you probably 
don't need the dns fsmo roles.

I don't understand why you think storing DNS is AD is complicated, as 
long as you don't use your normal dns domain for AD and use something 
like 'internal. your.domain.com' for AD, the Samba DNS would deal with 
anything for the AD domain and forward anything it doesn't know about to 
your normal DNS server. It is however your AD and you can do as you please.
