Okay, according to Lars' FAQ pages, a TNG BDC's smb.conf is
distinguished from a PDC's by these two parameters:

  password server = PDCNAME
  domain master = no

If I shut down a TNG BDC that I have just samsynced with an NT PDC,
take the NT PDC down, and alter the BDC's smb.conf to remove the first
line and change the second to "yes", will it then work as a PDC when
it is brought back up?

If not, what *would* need to be done?
