A Samba AD DC is composed of several components, all working together.
These components individually work just like they would if you where
running them separately. Bind 9 works just like any other Bind9 dns
server, except that the zones are stored in AD and you use bind_dlz
to connect them to the Bind9 server. Samba uses Heimdal for
kerberos, so you could read documentation on this. Otherwise a Samba
AD DC works very much like a Windows AD DC, so you could read any
windows documentation and expect it to relevant.
