Reported a couple of times to the Bugs address,
still haven't figured out what's going on.
Used to work in 1.9.17 versions.

I keep getting the following error when
I try to set my domain controller to a
local NT machine in smb.conf:

        Load smb config files from /etc/smb.conf
        Unknown parameter encountered: "domain controller"
        Ignoring unknown parameter "domain controller"

I had this problem in beta 2, and now in beta3:
Samba 1.9.18p3

Full steps to recreate problem:

In /etc/smb.conf (on Linux RedHat 5.0):

# Use only if you have an NT server on your network that has been
# configured at install time to be a primary domain controller.
;   domain controller = <NT-Domain-Controller-SMBName>
   domain controller = RFA_Server1
