[Samba] can't delete recursive DNS entry

Due to a mistake I created a subdomain with the name of the domain itself.


In my case the domain is briesebaer.intern and I created the subdomain

Using DNS RSAT Tool I see under briesebaer.intern the subdomain intern and
then a recurrence of the whole domain.

That means: under intern there is briesebaer and all of the dns query


The query shows the Name=intern with no Records and 1 child.

The same happens in the reverse Zone automatic


Any idea to delete these entries ? With RSAT Tool it's not possible and I
find no way to do it with the samba-tool
