You appear to be running Samba as a standalone server with an ldap 
backend, are you aware that such a setup is two parameters away from 
being a PDC ? If you comment out 'server role = standalone server' and 
add 'domain logons = yes', it becomes a PDC and a PDC (from 4.8.0) 
requires winbind to be running.
