I'm new to Linux and testing Samba AD DC.
I've set up 2 DCs. DC1 is able to resolve google.com, DC2 is not.

nslookup google.com 192.168.0.100
Server: 192.168.0.100
Address: 192.168.0.100#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: google.com
Address: 172.217.20.110

On DC2 however I get the following error

nslookup google.com 192.168.0.104
Server: 192.168.0.104
Address: 192.168.0.104#53

** server can't find google.com: NXDOMAIN

DC1 has the smb.conf file where dns forwarder = 8.8.8.8
DC2 doesn't seem to have this smb.conf file.
Where does the forwarder need to be specified?

The guide I've followed is: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Joining_a_Samba_DC_to_an_Existing_Active_Directory

However, it says here that DNS Transfers are not possible.
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_Internal_DNS_Back_End

Is there any other way to make DC2 also resolve DNS requests by using SAMBA_INTERNAL?

Found it! You have to add "dns forwarder = 8.8.8.8" in /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf
