I managed to solve this. The failure was due to CNAME. BIND's A record was
www, and I used ns as a CNAME of www. Nothing wrong with ISC's DHCP and
BIND's DDNS, but MS AD check couldn't resolve CNAME during installation.
So my workaround is to make ns as A record, and www CNAME ns. I will
revert that after installing AD. Thank you everyone for your help and

Best Regards,
