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.
