[Samba] Bind9 and reverse-zones

I know that the revers-recorords are not created automatically. We
created the revers-zone by hand and also the PTR-records where entered
by hand (only DCs and servers). That's not the problem, because this is
the same with the internal DNS. BUT the internal DNS is working without
any NS-Record, but the bind9 will not start if the NS-record is missing.

I think at least the DC with the FSMO-roles should be automatically put
in every revers-zone as NS-record, then everything would be fine.
