Samba PDC trashes NT PDC?

Hi All,

  Haven't played with samba for awhile and man it's good to be back!

  I grabbed a cvs copy of NTDOM and set up a PDC a couple of days ago. Seems to
work great except for profiles but I'll figure that out. The only problem is
that our IS guys PDC (on another domain) seemed to get screwed up right around
the time I was tweaking the samba PDC. They finally rebooted their machine but
it consequently would not even boot (%$##%$# NT!). My question is "Has anyone
seen this kind of behavior?" 

  I don't know about any kind of restrictions on the number of PDCs (in
different domains) on a subnet. Could it be some master browser conflict? Can
NT be so badly done that something I do on the network can actually screw up
the machin enough that a reboot can't fix it? Or is it just a coincidence?

Any opinions?
