The domain sid would need to be the same. and both machines
would need register with the same WINS server. Whichever
registered DOMAIN<1b> first would be the PDC.
In the case of a failure, once the other Samba PDC could register
DOMAIN<1b> with the WINS server, then machines should start
looking at this one as the PDC.
The domain sid things is standard with NT PDC <-> BDC's now. If you
install an NT Server and tell it that it will be a BNDC, it contacts the
PDC to get the domain sid
