Here we must also use corporate DNS servers. To avoid the need of starting
nmbd we asked to main DNS team to add a forward zone on their servers
(Bind) and when a DNS request arrive on non-AD-main-DNS-servers they know
where to forward these requests (on some of our DC which are declared as
forwarders for that zone).
As our AD domain is part of existing domain already managed by these
non-AD-DNS-servers they had to delegate that zone to AD servers.
This delegation is totally internal to non-AD-DNS-servers, our AD DNS
servers are not aware of that delegation.

And now to speak about your question: did you restarted nmbd after adding
the new IP? I expect yes, but in case of...
