Right. The assumption is that if your workgroup is, in fact, an NT
Domain then you will also authenticate to that NT Domain. The case in
which you would authenticate against the DC of a different domain is
considered an exception.
In Mike's case, if I understand it correctly, his organization wants
everyone to authenticate against a single ntdomain, and then they set up
trust relationships to the other ntdomains.
