[Samba] Samba unable to find SRV record during join

I just found out about the --server parameter to `samba-tool domain 
join`. I set it to the DNS name of one of the existing DCs, and the join 

I'd like to make sure that I understand the option description, though, 
which is:

     DC to join

Does this mean the DC to join is hardcoded instead of looked up with 
DNS? That would explain why the join succeeds now, but not why the 
original issue occurred.
