AD uses ldap for its account db...
Was this ever a part of an active directory domain?
For some reason  it seems like the XP thinks that 
the domain is an active directory domain...

I think that srv record that it refers to is something special that ms
does to dns.

Is there an active directory domain somewhere else on the network?
