Log file looks a little bit strange just before the failure.
For some reason, your PDC doesn't return what is expected in RootDSE.

Another thing I've noticed is that your machines are in different networks.
Why is that?
PDC is in, and it seems the machine you are
vampiring with is in network.
I don't know what the exact problem Samba may experience because
of this though. Just a note.

What I suggest is:
I will do a little bit more testing on my machine to see if there is
a bug with RootDSE searches (now I notice, that in log I've got from
Aaron few days ago, RootDSE contains duplicated attribute values, so
it seems there is a bug here)

In the meanwhile, could you check what RootDSE search gives you
against your PDC?
In case you don't know, you may do this by running something like:
> bin/ldbsearch -H ldap:// -b '' -s base "objectclass=*"
> bin/ldbsearch -H ldap:// -b '' -s base "objectclass=*"

And also, could you please try re-vampiring with the two machines in
same network?
