Currently, i cannot. ;-(

'they still might be trying to find it' came form your experience, or
there's some docs outh there that describe the situation?

No, you are not understood me (or, probably, i not explained me ;).

I suposed that bind_dlz is a module needed to read zone files directly
in AD ''database'', but not ''extend'' the DNS protocol, so having the
DC bind9 server reply to client query and cache/redirect ones to the AD
bind9 server, or having the converse (bind9 AD server reply to client
request, and forward to other bind9 server the non-domain query) was
the same.

Knowing a bit the DNS protocol, the latter or the former seems to me
the same...

Anyway, we are trying to re-image some of these box, and problem
desappear. Boh.
