That mean for example if my domain resolve


the dnsmasq should NOT resolv  xxxxxx.mydomain.com this is in ascending way

Another way to expose:
We set dnsmasq+dhcp to set clients that the only DNS server is samba DC on
the domain name mysubdomain.mydomain.com

DC for example resolv  server1.mysubdomain.mydomain.com right, now if a
client as for a ddddd.mydomain.com DC response or ask to dnamasq fot that
or produce a horrible loop that you mentioned?
