If this is the case, then perhaps the documentation should be updated?

If set to true, the Samba server will serve Windows
95/98 Domain logons for the workgroup it is in. For
more details on setting up this feature see the
file DOMAINS.txt in the Samba documentation direc
tory docs/ shipped with the source code.
Note that Win95/98 Domain logons are NOT the same
as Windows NT Domain logons. NT Domain logons
require a Primary Domain Controller (PDC) for the
Domain. It is intended that in a future release
Samba will be able to provide this functionality
for Windows NT clients also.
Default: domain logons = no
Nowhere does it suggest that setting this option is a no-no if you have an NT
domain using the same name as your workgroup.
