Not a good idea.  The Netlogon share is normally mounted as Z: during
startup.  This could cause you problems later.

For reasons that have been stated before on this and the main samba
list, you don't want to put the profile anywhere in \\server\%U\...
Make a separate share instead something like \\server\profile\%U

The [homes] share is treated differently than all other shares.

These suggestions are **not** directly related to your problem I think.
Just observations.
