Description Alex MacCuish 2016-08-06 00:27:13 UTC
Currently samba4 returns the SOA of an integrated zone with the primary server that created the zone, normally the first provisioned server in a domain. This means that this server is responsible for accepting all ddns updates, as clients direct their updates to the host in the SOA.

Samba4 via either bind-dlz or the internal server should rewrite the SOA with itself as the primary server when queried so that dynamic updates are distributed.

We also need to return the SOA record in the authoritative section
when the client asks for a non-existing name in our zone.

That's how clients typically find the server for dynamic dns updates.
