And wrong is `the domain is .local`
Why o why is .local use. That is a reserved name for mDNS (avahi).. Yes.
So what happend here is TOTALY CORRECT. Here the problem is you are using .local

Possible yes, but if correctly setup, not needed.
And a bit ahead thinking people... Future systems, will mostly use systemd, if we like it or not.
Then if systemd is use correctly and you use the systemd-resolvd, you get this.
A random new server im setting up, not a samba server, but that not the point, the point is resolving,
And what you see in this output.
sudo resolvectl ( the defaults )
LLMNR setting: yes
MulticastDNS setting: yes
DNSOverTLS setting: no
DNSSEC setting: no
DNSSEC supported: no
Fallback DNS Servers: 22.214.171.124
DNSSEC NTA: 10.in-addr.arpa
So what you shouldn't be using for samba domains:
More ahead, about LLMNR
Network Basic Input/Output System (NetBIOS)
Peer Name Resolution Protocol (Pt DNS (mDNS)
Zero-configuration networking (Zeroconf)
Now mix this and what do you get.
Samba + avahi and the use for LLMNR to replace netbios.
But is this what you want..
I dont think so.
Read : https://www.blackhillsinfosec.com/how-to-disable-llmnr-why-you-want-to/
So why again is it so important to have a perfect dns setup.....
So you dont have to use LLMNR or netbios anymore.
But if you setup correct, avahi and dns can exist fine on a samba network.
But again, this is my personal opinion, not recommended.
