This probably won't work, I tried child domains few months ago and they were 
not supported, and I haven't caught anything about this changing since

one of the symptoms is that samba assumes the configuration container is in 
domain basedn, while it should be in forest basedn, but the incompatibilities 
were deeper - you can try searching the archives
