OS = Ubuntu 18.04 in an LXD container
Samba 4.11.x and up

Is there a way to have DNS resolution on the server that can coexist with
the samba ad dc internal DNS server? The way that I have it set up,
whenever samba is not running, then I can't use any web resources b/c
everything goes through the samba internal DNS. So I can't do system
updates and upgrades unless samba is running.

I saw this discussion (
https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2020-August/231345.html) between
Louis and Rowland but didn't know if it might apply to my situation.

    version: 2
            dhcp4: false
            addresses: []
                search: [mydom.samdom.com]
                addresses: [,,] is this server is another AD DC is a router/gateway
