Samba as PDC *and* BDC?

Is it possible for two unix boxes running the Samba NT domain code to
function as primary and backup domain controllers?

Replicating the smbpasswd file is pretty trivial with SSH or
something, but are there other factors that need to be addressed to
make this work?

For instance, does the domain SID have to be similar or completely
different for the two machines?
