You don't need winbindd if you are running a samba based PDC.
Winbind allows native NT accounts to be visible to the linux machine.
So in short if your runnign a samba PDC then turn off winbindd.
I can't actually help you set up the PDC as I've never done it BUT at least
you now have one less area to look for problems.
