As far as I can tell (I'm not entirely certain though) this is an
Active Directory / Windows Server configuration issue around loosening
permissions enough for the DHCP service to update the DNS records.

I don't know exactly what settings need to be configured though, as I
didn't manage to get it working either. In the end I decided to keep
the standard security and just use static IPs and DNS records for
winbind machines.
