I think the realm should NOT include the server name. Maybe tms3 or
someone else can comment.

If you want your Samba4+bind9 machine to host the domaine.ch zone (or
you can do dynamic updates to the domaine.ch zone from Samba4) then
you should probably do something like this:

setup/provision --realm=DOMAINE.CH --domain=DOMAINE
--adminpass=xxxxxxxx --server-role='domain controller'
