how to verify a machine is a DC

What is the best (most reliable) way to verify that a
particular machine is a DC for a given domain? Particularly
when NetBIOS over TCP has been disabled on that DC.

I used to use nmblookup for the <domain>#1c name but that
will not work if NetBIOS is disabled so I'm looking for
a way that will work in both situations.
