First, what isn't clear about the wiki-page ?
Without feedback, we cannot improve the wiki.

As far as your Samba DC's are concerned, you can either use the
Samba internal dns server or Bind9. Whichever you use it must be
authoritative for the dns domain, anything outside the domain should be
forwarded to a dns server outside your Samba dns domain. If you
use Bind9, it must be run on the DC, to allow DLZ updates of the
data stored in AD. Anything else is not supported by Samba.
