[Samba] Error while transferring fsmo-roles

After applying change in fsmo.py proposed by Norbert Hanke I was able to
transfer roles without error but only when proceeding one by one:
# for role in rid pdc naming infrastructure schema domaindns forestdns ; do
samba-tool fsmo transfer --role=$role -k yes ; done
FSMO transfer of 'rid' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'pdc' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'naming' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'infrastructure' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'schema' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'domaindns' role successful
FSMO transfer of 'forestdns' role successful
Regarding _ldap._tcp.pdc._msdcs.samdom.domain.tld SRV entry there is still
an issue as now I have both DC declared into that SRV rather than one as
I'm using Samba 4.6.5 on both DC.
I'll remove manually non-PDC entry from PDC SRV records and I'll try to
remember to to test that again once I'll have upgraded my DC's Samba
