I know, what I am trying to do, is demote each Domain Controller one at 
a time. then re-promote it with --dns-backend=Bind_dlz.

I have all my bind servers with chroot switched off. but when I activate 
the Bind Dlz AD Zone, Bind crashes saying there are no records in the 
zone. Hence the demotion/promotion thing,.
