You are not using a Samba supported dns server, Samba AD will not be
able to update your dns files.

From the Samba provision code:

    if dns_backend == "NONE":
        logger.info("No DNS backend set, not configuring DNS")

What part of 'No DNS backend set, not configuring DNS' do you not
understand ?

Do not do this!
