The solution was easy .. at least it looks that way now that I learned 
about DHCP relaying.

The DCs now only have one NIC with one IP again (and in turn only one 
DNS record).

The VLAN interfaces on my pfsense forward DHCP traffic to both of the 
Kea servers ... where that traffic magically gets matched with the 
serveral subnets defined there.

Works so far, looks elegant ... and, yes: samba group policies work in 
the VLANs now as well.

thanks all, Stefan
