[Samba] placing sam.ldb (was dns.keytab doesn't exist)

I have the keytab file, and it's pointed there. What line do I put in 
for the sam.ldb file? I can see where the good one and the bogus one 
were created. I'm perfectly content to copy the good one over the bogus 
one, but if there's a better option, I'd like to know about it. I have 
NO lines dealing with sam.ldb at all. the tkey-gssapt-keytab line 
already existed in my config, no worries there.

Once I do all of this, in theory I should be able to start named in 
association with samba, right? And then samba should be able to tell 
named when to update the zone files for the domain, right?
