OK, I have been thinking about this (yes I know, thinking, possibly 
dangerous), And yes, you could do that on a DC, but why ?

All your clients would use '' for their nameserver and 
'' and '' would be ignored by the clients, or am I 
missing something.

Also, lets not forget we are talking about a DC , so if you cannot 
remove systemd-resolve and manually create /etc/resolv.conf, you have no 
place in setting up a Samba AD DC.
