If you read the release notes for 4.7.0, you will find this:

Improvements to DNS during Active Directory domain join

The 'samba-tool' domain join command will now add the A and GUID DNS
records (on both the local and remote servers) during a join if
possible via RPC. This should allow replication to proceed more
smoothly post-join.

The mname element of the SOA record will now also be dynamically
generated to point to the local read-write server. 'samba_dnsupdate'
should now be more reliable as it will now find the appropriate name
server even when resolv.conf points to a forwarder. 



This means, you shouldn't have to add anything manually, the join and
the first running of 'samba_dnsupdate' should do it for you.

Please do not reply direct to me or the the Samba Team, reply to the
Samba mailing list (I have CC'ed the Samba list)
