No it's not.
Following the doc here
I see than the needed files (like /var/lib/samba/private/named.conf and 
/var/lib/samba/private/dns.keytab) are generated by samba-tool so I 
don't have them ready to be added to bind9 config.

Before running samba-tool this is content of relevant files:
root at srvad-new:~# cat /etc/hosts       localhost       srvad-old.samdom.local srvad-old      srvad-new.samdom.local   srvad-new

root at srvad-new:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search samdom.local

Am I missing something?
