I installed exactly your setup with replicated OpenLDAP. It should go into
production these days. It's a lot of small details to care for, but once you
got it working it's straightforward.

The only idea is to have samba get its SAM information from a local OpenLDAP
that is replicated from the PDC's LDAP Server to the BDC's LDAP. The BDC should
have 'domain master = no' and 'domain logons = yes'.
