Service name=?=domain name

Given an NT domain controller for the domain "GOOB", does NT allow the
PDC to also be named "GOOB"? That is, can there be a machine (most
likely the PDC) with the same name as the domain itself?
The only NetBIOS name conflict would be the #00 name. The workstation
itself would register GOOB#00 as its workstation name. The browsing
service might attempt to register the group name GOOB#00 to conform to the
old LANman 2 domain system (which is probably no longer in popular use).
Other than this, I can think of no name conflicts that would prevent
using the same name for both the NTdomain and the server. Still, this
might be enough to cause Microsoft not to allow the PDC itself to take on
the name of the domain it serves.
