Why not add a second NIC or virtual IP:
ifconfig eth0:0 netmask up
and then set up the second samba server on this eth0:0?

That's true, but why not have two domains with two PDCs?

no problem.

BTW: the last days Guenther Deschner sent me his howto which handles
exactly what we're talking about:

Just one notice: Guenther tells us to bind the interface with:
                bind interfaces only = true
                interfaces =

but if you want to allow users using smbpasswd from localhost, you should
add localhost to the list of the interfaces:
		interfaces =
