I think I've figured out what the problem is.  There can be only one
outstanding challenge per IP address so the mutex needs to be around the
ServerReqChallenge and ServerAuthenticate2 calls.

A short test program confirms this.  If I open two cli handles to the
same domain controller and perform two ServerReqChallenge calls then
two ServerAuthenticate2 calls, both authentications fail with access
denied.  Performing the authentications immediately after the challenge
requests works correctly.

Thanks to Andrew Bartlett for pointing out the obvious.  (-:
