[Samba] adding Windows client reverse dns entries

Once again, reading here and there and I am confused. 

I thought the W clients (both W7 and W10) reverse dns PTR records where
added by the ADDC automatically. 

This mornings testing (nslookup of client IP addresses) is not finding
clients via their IP addresses. (Forward lookups via hostname work

Do we (users of samba4) need to add each W client to our dns servers?
(Grated this would be a one time action requirement, if needed.)
