I read https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Active_Directory_Naming_FAQ - 
but I am not sure that my configuration is right.

I run a private network that can only be accessed from the internet via 
dyndns (Webserver in dmz). Samba should be only accessed from the local 

So I gave my local (private) Network the top-level-domain "duck". My 
clients are named




The computer on which samba runs has the computer name "file.duck".

What name is correct for the configuration by: samba-tool domain provision

Realm: smbdomain.file.duck

Domain: smbdomain


Could you explain me?

Thank you!
