Still not really understanding this, I think you are saying that in
Windows AD, the REALM does not have to be the same as the dns domain,
it could be a dns subdomain like 'subdomain.example.com' with a REALM
of 'EXAMPLE.COM' (or visa versa). As I have said, you cannot have a
subdomain yet (and Windows is recommending to not use subdomains), so,
as far as Samba is concerned, the REALM is the dns domain in

Again, just trying to understand.
