If you are going to compile Samba, you need to have your compiled Samba 
binaries etc found before any OS Samba binaries, so run this:

export PATH="/usr/local/samba/bin:/usr/local/samba/sbin:$PATH"

To be honest, I wouldn't run Samba 4.11.x on Debian 9

Probably not, but you may have other packages installed that shouldn't 
be used, but are being used because your PATH is wrong, see above.

Can I suggest a better way of doing things ?

Install Debian 10 on a new computer (bare metal or VM), use the repo 
here: http://apt.van-belle.nl/

Install Samba 4.11.x from the repo and join this to the domain as a new 
DC. This will work.
