What I suggested Samba takes care of is the case where

You can easily solve that by checking if _someone else_ is
already registered as PDC on the network.
This is actually normal NT behaviour (I have done it before with two NT
servers). If your bring up a PDC when another PDC is present for the same domain
it instantly turns itself into a workstation.
