I think it will count when you change password. IIRC clients use the 
netlogon share to change passwords and they have to change passowrds on 
the PDC. To do this they will access a file on the PDC's netlogon share 
and thus will count as a user of file services on the PDC.

I'll be happy to be corrected on this if I'm wrong
