Try this:

* Move /usr/local/samba/private/named.conf to /etc/named.conf.samba4.
* Move /usr/local/samba/private/dns/domaine.ch.zone to
/var/lib/named/master (I think.)
* Edit named.conf.samba4 and change the path to domaine.ch.zone to
where you moved it.
* Make sure /etc/named.conf points to the new location of named.conf.samba4.

See if that works.
