Hi Edgar, unless you are doing something wrong, I think you may be
misunderstanding a Samba domain and DNS.
Every Samba AD DC runs a a dns server, this could be the built in dns
server or Bind9. You refer to 'slave-DNS', but there are no 'slaves' in
Samba AD, like Microsoft AD, all dns servers running on a DC are
masters, this is known as 'multi-master'. As all the dns records are
stored in AD, you just setup the dns server the same on all DC's.
Any further questions, please ask.
