Multiple Samba server in Domain

I clarify that i would have :
1 samba PDC which authenticate users and manage homes directory for a 
lot of them
1 or more other samba server (not PDC) which manage the directory of the 
others users.

Then I can't set   logon home for all users in the global section :

example : 
user A1 and A2 have their home directory on the PDC
user B1 and B2 ont the second samba server

the logon home parameter would be :
   logon home = \\PDCserver\%u for users A1 and A2
   logon home = \\2ndserver\%u for users B1 and B2

Another question is about the user's creation. Must I add the users on  
the two samba server ?
