hi together,

I am quite new to the topic domain controller but have earned my spurs 
in the linux field for other topics.

I started with a fresh ubuntu22.04 VM for testing reasons. The 
installation was so far successful following the samba wiki. Also the 
Section "Create a reverse zone" resulted in `Zone 0.99.10.in-addr.arpa 
created successfully` but for testing I followed looked into the german 
explanation of ubuntuusers because the wiki does not explain how to test 
and enter the first entry (my dc01 server).

Since the creation of the reverse zone was the same in the wiki as in 
the ubuntuusers plattform, I thought I followed them for dns reverse 
testing. Everything worked out as expected:

  * the dns add returned successfull
  * the dns querry returned exactly what is shown on ubuntuusers
  * *but* the host returns Host not
    found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

what might be the issue here? (systemd-resolved was disabled earlier)
