This appears to be more of an error with samba_dnsupdate than your AD ;-)

Python is raising an exception because the records already exist, it 
should either remain silent or just print a message like 'Record exists'.

Can I suggest you upgrade your version of Samba, 4.9.x is EOL as far as 
Samba is concerned, you can get later versions here: 

There have been numerous updates since 4.9.5 and the fix for your 
non-error may be one of them ;-)
