Neither did I, considering that the smb.conf(5) manual page says:

    If  the  security  parameter is set to domain, then
    the list of machines in this option must be a  list
    of  Primary  or  Backup  Domain controllers for the
    Domain or the character '*'


    Default: password server = <empty string>

If the actual behavior is different from that, then I would
like to request that the smb.conf manual page be updated.
