I told you, turn off bind9 on , it appears to be trying to 
be authoritative for the 'caloro.m' dns domain and unless you can sync 
the dns records from the DC to your bind9 dns server (and keep them 
synced), you are going to have problems.

If you must use Bind9, then install it on the DC and upgrade Samba to 
use it.

Your Windows problem is undoubtedly caused by the Windows client 
contacting your Bind9 server (which very probably knows nothing about 
the AD domain) instead of the DC.
