[Samba] Another DNS problem

I just changed a DNS/rDNS record using samba-tool. According to 
samba-tool the change actually occurred. I can query the new record:

 > samba-tool dns query nikita.samdom.example.com samdom.example.com dc1 ALL
   Name=, Records=1, Children=0
     A: (flags=f0, serial=149, ttl=900)

Similarly the rDNS shows:

samba-tool dns query nikita.samdom.example.com 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa ALL
   Name=, Records=1, Children=0
     PTR: dc1.samdom.example.com (flags=f0, serial=108, ttl=900)

But named says otherwise:

 > dig -x +short @nikita.samdom.example.com

 > dig dc1.samdom.example.com +short @nikita.samdom.example.com

 > dig www-new.samdom.example.com +short @nikita.samdom.example.com

I had this happen once before and had to do something to force the 
change. I don't remember what or why. Can anyone help? I would love to 
get this problem fixed so it doesn't occur again.
