It should also create the record (although I haven't tested right now).

SSSD would so far only create the address family that is used to connect
to the server. We have an RFE open to update both:
    https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/2120
and also update the address on startup, not on going offline, which
might be too late in some cases:
    https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1926

But what I see as a potentially more important blocker is that SSSD
always use the GSSAPI credentials of the joined realm. If the external
DNS server requires different authentication, the update wouldn't
succeed.
