There's a MS-CLDAP query for it. Essentially, one takes the list of
domain controllers in the DNS SRV record _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.DOMAIN then
sends out MS-CLDAP queries on the RootDSE for the Netlogon attribute with
a filter (&(DnsDomain=DOMAIN)(Host=myHost)(NtVer=\0\0\0\6)). Then one
would look for an entry that has both ADS_CLOSET and ADS_GC set (and was
in your domain).
We don't have an api yet to do this in Samba but in Windows one would use:
DsGetDcName(NULL, domain, NULL, NULL, DS_GC_SERVER_REQUIRED, &dc_info);

I mean the Global Catelog server. Is there a LDAP query for that?
