We are not much off. But you have mixed "samba/window" and "windows/windows" settings. 
Samba/windows \\%logonserver%\home\%username%\desktop
Windows/windows \\hostname.fqdn.tld\users\%username%\desktop 

Guess, which one i use.  ;-)  

Now, do get where this is coming from. 
So use this (add CNAME for you member server ), Note, you MUST setup PTR records. 

And offcourse this is not correct. 

You "logon" server = the DC. Not the member. 

So my advice, setup as suggested, and im sure you never see this again.
