Samba advertising as Primary Domain Controller

I have run into a group who have a bunch of Windows NT servers on a wan.
They have a PDC and several BDCs among the Windows NT machines.
They are also running Samba (1.9.18p4) and they want it to participate in
the domain, but not as a PDC. They essentially want the Samba machine to
defer security decissions to the Windows NT PDC.
However, they seem to have a problem, in that the Samba machine seems to be
advertising itself as a PDC, and the Windows NT machines believe it.
Can anyone suggest what the problem might be? I will be going there soon to
look into the problem.
