If you are only going to have one DC, then the internal DNS server is
okay, it just doesn't work as well as Bind9. Once you have more than
one DC (which is the recommendation), then it is better to use Bind9.

Louis went down the same path as you, least amount of changes, I, on the
other hand, do not see the point in having a program just to change
something that will only get changed once, so I reverted Ubuntu 18.04
back to the old way of doing things and removed systemd-resolved etc.
You pays your money and makes your choices ;-)
