As far as I concern, everytime NT PDC was in trouble, their rpc remains
online. So when they restarted, any connection must be re-established, including
from Samba box. This happened to me some time ago. Otherwise no one could be
able to log on. Or... this is something that I got surprise: any users even the
non-exixtence users will be able to login to PDC... ( I experienced this once
when using NT with SP4)...
