ntlm_auth only works with PDC?

Hello fellow listers,

Using Samba V3 ntlm_auth with Squid2.5stable4, does it require that the
password server in smb.conf be the PDC all the time?

I tried to put all the DC's (both PDC and the 3 BDCs) in smb.conf but we
got an auth popups very often. When I switched it back to ONLY the PDC,
the problem seems greatly reduced (although the auth popups do still
occur, though not as often).
