[Samba] Azure AD Connect

So, testing samba 4.12 on a Debian buster I found those no-go issues:

- Password sync dont work either way, nor sync neither write-back.

- Distribution groups can't receive external mails, it relies on missing 
properties on samba schema regarding Exchange. So I cant permit a group 
to receive mail from outside my domain.

That said, only option to any kind of integration with Azure is give up 
on samba and migrate ALL DCs to Microsoft as of now. I've been working 
on this network with samba for more than a decade, seems it is time to 
move on for me.

Thanks all, best regards.
