To be honest, I probably could talk you through fixing your setup, but
it will probably be easier, if possible, to setup a new domain.

If you do decide to go down the new domain route, can I make a few
suggestions ?
Use  the latest Debian and use Samba from bookworm-backports, which
will get you Samba 4.18.6. This isn't the very latest version, but it
is very close.
Use the internal dns server when you provision.
