I don't know what the source of the problem is. It could be a bug in samba
or some settings you've made (or didn't made) in either samba-PDC or
NT-clients. But if the process failed AFTER the connection between the PDC
and the client is made, then both sides (PDC and client) should report the
problem in there events log. That's why you get this error on your clients.
Now, if you can find a way to stop your samba-PDC from initiating the whole
process, you'll stop receiving this error. If you don't care about the error
getting into the events log of all clients, then you can leave it as is.

BTW, I don't have a samba-PDC installed (yet!) so I can't go deep into
details about samba. I can just gives you tips or information based on my NT
