>From the smb.conf (5) I read :

 If you list several hosts in the "password server" option then smbd
      will try each in turn till it finds one that responds. This is useful
      in case your primary server goes down.

Here's smb.conf global section

wins support = no
domain master = no
local master = yes
preferred master = no
os level = 1
mangle case = no
case sensitive = yes
preserve case = yes
server string = %h Samba %v - Matt Foster
time server = true 
print command = lp -d%p %s
lpq command = lpstat %p
lprm command = cancel %p
security = server
password server = machinea machineb
syslog only = yes
syslog = 1
debug level = 2

MachineA is the PDC of an NT domain.
MachineB is the PDC of another NT domain (no trust relationships).

It appears that only the first one is tried, in the above example I can
log into domaina, but not domainb.  If I swap it around the reverse is true.
The appropriate "dummy" entries are setup in /etc/passwd.

Anyone got this to work, or have any ideas?

Otherwise it's working remarkabley well.
