It's in secrets.tdb. The easiest way is to have both servers with different
'netbios name' entries but with a common 'netbios aliases'. The 'netbios name'
determines the workstation account name, and the common 'netbios aliases' is
the additional one that is announced to clients. This way no information about
domain membership needs to be shared.
