we have a samba4 AD-DC running 4.10, which replaced a Win2008 DYC many 
years ago.
During this migration  (2008-DC->samba4-dc) sometings seems to went wrong.
The new DC only misses the a seperate _msdcs.XXX.lan zone, like other 
samba4 dc show

samba-tool dns zonelist server01 -U Administrator

   pszZoneName                 : XXX.lan
   Flags                       : DNS_RPC_ZONE_DSINTEGRATED 
   ZoneType                    : DNS_ZONE_TYPE_PRIMARY
   Version                     : 50
   dwDpFlags                   : DNS_DP_AUTOCREATED 
   pszDpFqdn                   : ForestDnsZones.XXX.lan

the zone _ msdcs is located as subzone under XXX.lan

Now I am trying to join a second dc, the join finishes, but shows

"NO DNS zone information found in source domain, not replicating DNS"

therefore no DNS partions are created on the new server either.

Is there a way to fix it?
e.g. by reapplying  /usr/share/samba/setup/provision_dnszones*.ldif ?
or running somthing like 

The zone XXX.lan itself contains only the default values for 
servicerecords etc and could be replaced
