After asking the WINS for DOMAIN#1c the Workstation sends out a
Broadcast NetBIOS Datagram along with a directed packet to the first
IP in the DOMAIN#1c answer. The broadcast responder is then
preferred. This way you always get the local DC to answer the logon
request. 'domain master = no' is necessary to direct the password
change requests to the PDC and to avoid the WINS name clash.

Not relevant, this only applies to Browsing.

Yes :-) Only in a test scenario until now, but there it works
