It seems to be working now.  I think something I did below solved the issue.

I tweaked my /etc/network/interfaces as per below and removed the kerberos server:

>>Yep, 'apt-get purge krb5-kdc krb5-admin-server'
>>The kerberos server is built into the samba AD DC

I also did this:
Info. from https://www.server-world.info/en/note?os=Debian_9&p=samba&f=4
systemctl stop smbd nmbd winbind
systemctl disable smbd nmbd winbind
systemctl unmask samba-ad-dc
systemctl start samba-ad-dc
systemctl enable samba-ad-dc

I doubt this helped but I did this also:
apt remove avahi-daemon
