This is the problem: after enabling domain logins, your samba server
claims to be the PDC and thus prevents any communication with
the  Windows NT PDC. There is currently no way of making samba a BDC, 
so you have to run your domain either on NT or on samba.
To work across subnets you don't realy need a second domain controler
but a WINS server that ensures NetBios name resolution across subnets.
