I compile bind9. As I understand it, a download and compile has been required to get BIND with a DLZ backend on Ubuntu for some time. I use the sources that Ubuntu provides:

apt-get source bind9

mkdir source
cd source
wget https://download.samba.org/pub/samba/stable/samba-4.5.4.tar.gz
tar -zxf samba-4.5.4.tar.gz
cd samba-4.5.4/
./configure --enable-fhs --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-debug
sudo -s
service samba-ad-dc stop
make install

Yes. Always have been doing this the with the same configure options.
