This is how you should do it. 

Can you post your /etc/hosts and resolv.conf 
Samba uses?  Bind9_DLZ or Internal DNS ? 
And smb.conf of both servers. 

If you use bind, also post the bind config.

Anonimize where needed.

> The secondary DNS server seems to answer to dns request

> The FSMO also points to secondary server that was the main 
> server until I used the other as main DNS.
> How I can make HA for Windows Clients?
