Thanks for response. I actually looked it myself. Since there is no
DLZ ABI changes since 9.11, I reckon as it would be easy as making 
"python/samba/provision/sambadns.py" aware of Bind 9.12 will do the
job without any hassle.

Any extra build routine for 9.12 will do things complicated 
without a sensible reason. I prepared a patch and tested it locally.
It seems it just works fine during provision and as a dns backend.

Patch attached.
