Conflict between NT-PDC and Samba 2.0.6

I've got a Solaris 2.6 SPARC system running Samba 2.0.6 and an NT-4.0sp5
PDC system.  If Samba is running on the Sun system when the NT PDC is
rebooted it (the NT system) complains that there is already another PDC in
the domain.  This should not be as far as I can see as I've tried
specifically to configure the Samba systems not to do this and in fact
prior to upgrading to Samba version 2.0.6 (from 1.9.18p10) it did not.  I
don't remember making any relevant configuration changes during said period
but have included my smb.conf file below for your consideration.  Please
help... is this a Samba bug or just misconfiguration!?

The rest is removed for the sake of brevity.  :-)
