With Fedora being a bit 'bleeding edge', I just wondered if they had
started using Bind10, but 9.11 should be okay, Samba knows all about
that version ;-)

Not sure, all I can tell you is what packages I install when creating a
DC on Devuan:

samba acl attr quota fam winbind libpam-winbind libpam-krb5
libnss-winbind krb5-config krb5-user ntp dnsutils ldb-tools bind9

I just install Bind9, configure it, but do not start it. I then
provision Samba. I then start Bind9 followed by Samba and it just
works. Perhaps there is something wrong in your bind conf files ?
