Hey Steven,

From what I remember, fallback back to the asking the
forest root is what I saw Windows do.  But it has been
a really long time so I might have missed some details.
It would be interesting to know if the LsaLookupName()
call behaves different against a DC in our domain vs. the
GC vs. a forest root DC.

cheers, jerry
