It is stored in the very place you don't want to spin up more of, the AD
DC database ;-)

There is nothing stopping you setting up dns servers that are outside
the AD DC domain and using these as forwarders for the AD DC

The easiest way to do what you want to do, is to do exactly what you
don't want to do, set up more DCs.

The DC should only really be used to store the AD domain dns records,
it can be used for other zones as well, but it is better to forward
anything not in the AD dns to an external dns server.

By the way, you would probably have been better off using Debian
stretch with Louis's Samba packages (this would get you uptodate Samba)
rather than using the turnkey Domain Controller.
