[Samba] Separate DNS hostname on client computers than AD domain name

Is it possible to assign a DNS domain name that is different from the AD 
domain's own domain? So I want my AD domain to be example.tld, but I'd 
like the machines FQDN to reflect location, so server1.eu.example.tld, 
server2.us.example.tld. Will I need to set up a forest and two separate 
domains (making it 3 domains), or can this be accomplished in some other 
way? I tried looking at SPN/UPN, but not sure if it's related. Also, is 
it even possible with Samba to do forest + domains?
