The syntax is:
samba-tool dns add <server> <zone> <name> A <data>

From the above:

<server> =
<zone> = interbronz.local
<name> = asus.interbronz.local
<data> =

Provided '' is a Samba AD DC, this is okay.
Provided 'interbronz.local' is the forward zone, this is okay.
Provided '' is the IP of 'asus.interbronz.local', this is okay.

The <name> is wrong, it should just be 'asus'

If 'local' is your TLD, then turn off Avahi if it is running, this
means anywhere in your Samba AD domain
