thanks for all your previous comments, I've kept studying the issue so I can explain it a bit better now:
1) I just want to use AD in my machines, where I manage DNS and DHCP (and PXE!) with dnsmasq.
2) AD requires to preferably "support the service (SRV) resource record type and the dynamic update protocol, as described in the RFC 2136" [http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759550(WS.10).aspx], this seemingly is used to insert a few dozen records when installing AD, and there is documentation on the internet on how to use bind instead of the windows dns service.
3) It is possible also to do it manually, which keeps my hopes of using dnsmasq for it alive: "At the very least, the DNS server must support the SRV resource record; but the SRV resource records can be added to DNS manually. After installing Active Directory, these records can be found on the domain controller in the following location: systemroot\System32\Config\Netlogon.dns."
So my question should have been: Is RFC2136 supported or in the roadmap? (And a "no" for an answer is perfectly understood, the simplicity of dnsmasq is something to be safeguarded).
