[Samba] DNS timestamps

Hey Rowland,

  OK, The DNS MMC does let you mark whether a record is supposed to be
static (timestamp = 0 I think) or not but changing it does not seem to
work. As I really don't want to get stuck using windows to manage DNS, is
there a way to do a "samba-tool dns add" that creates a static entry?

My goal is to get things cleaned up so I can turn on scavenging and further
be able to create dynamic entries (from DHCP for example) versus static
entries for servers on the command line.
