As the domain master browser is the DC, and the DC doesn't support being
a domain master browser, there is no way to do this in the officially
supported configuration.  We just didn't get time to implement the
remaining hooks in the nbt server in 'samba'. 

There is a way to disable the nbt server, and enable nmbd, and it will
mostly work, but I'm trying hard to avoid having such a divergence of
different supported, official configurations (as I'll need to support
the result).
