I don't know if it is a PDC problem.

Perhaps you have a IP to Name resolving problem.
Is your workstation is in DNS, /etc/hosts or NIS(+) map ?
If using DNS, have you the correct reverse mapping data in the DNS ?

Try : 
1) nslookup IP_adress_of_the_workstation
and look the time of the answer.
2) add your test workstation in /etc/hosts and try again.

Have a nice day.
