I'm sorry but I think you have only bought yourself long-term pain.  

Samba is free software, you are free to use and abuse it however you
like, but I don't see how the AD ACLs for DNS entries are applied in
this case, or how you plan to do multi-master replication.

In particular, adding a second DC will be painful.

There is a big difference between what is technically possible (and we
try to keep many things technically possible) and what is a good idea.
