correct. 1.9.16 is very aggressive in its (incorrect) registration of
the DOMAIN<1b> NetBIOS name on its broadcast-isolated subnets, screwing
1.9.17's ability to register this NetBIOS name.
not that you should be configuring two samba servers to both be the domain
master anyway: this is a stupid thing to do.
except for multiple 1.9.17 samba servers, which have the capability to
fight amongst themselves for providing (redundant) domain master (and logon)

1.9.16 _must_ be the WINS server: it cannot cope with registering its
netbios names with another WINS server of _any_ type.
