We do it.  We have our main domain with a PDC, and we have another domain 
for support staff.  Its what happens when you plug in a new computer that 
hasn't joined the domain, or is a Win 9x machine.

I don't think there would be any problems with two PDCs - I'm sure I've
done that during testing.  It probably isn't easily possible on the one
server (maybe two NICs, two samba installs, etc).
