The NTDOM FAQ is the only current documentation for the Samba PDC
support.  Q2.1 ( "How do I download the latest Samba NT Domain
Controller code? " ) tells you that you need the head branch code 
rather than the main distributed version ( 1.9.18p8 ).

Once you download the head branch, follow the direction in Q2.2 ( "How
do I get my NT Workstation / Server to login to the Samba controlled
Domain?" ).

I will point out that the first item under Q2.2 is to download the
latest main ( head ) branch code by following the instructions in 

Hope this helps,
