 From 'man smb.conf':

nsupdate command (G)

     This option sets the path to the nsupdate command which is used for 
GSS-TSIG dynamic DNS updates.

     Default: nsupdate command = /usr/bin/nsupdate -g

dns update command (G)

     This option sets the command that is called when there are DNS 
updates. It should update the local machines DNS names using TSIG-GSS.

     Default: dns update command = ${prefix}/sbin/samba_dnsupdate

     Example: dns update command = /usr/local/sbin/dnsupdate

You probably need both.
