I tried your solution, reinstalling my server and my DNS, and I put as name :

I have not reinstalled all Samba 4, but when it's doing, I'll gives new!

This may be the name: Samba can cause confusion

Thank you

OK, then it seems that your realm, and therefore your DNS domain, is
"server.samba", so that is why the Windows machine is trying to find

I think you should try something like this rather:

setup/provision --realm=SAMBA.LOCAL --domain=SAMBA --adminpass=xxxx
--server-role="domain controller"

Then make sure that your DNS works for all of these:
server.samba.local (A record)
_ldap._tcp.samba.local. (SRV record)
_kerberos._udp.samba.local. (SRV record)

I hope that works.
