[Samba] Remote password server and dual-homed host

I have a remote samba server which is dual homed. Each network IF
serves branch-office networks to remote (head-office) password servers.
One subnet uses a Samba PDC and the remote password server seems to work
fine. The other uses an NT4 password server and doesn't work. Joining
the remote domains on each works fine, wins name resolution is fine,
I can connect to the remote PDC and authenticate fine with smbclient.

I'm using 2.2.3a, errors for the remote NT password server are:

connect_to_domain_password_server: unable to setup the PDC credentials to mach
ine PDC. Error was : NT_STATUS_OK.

Using the same password server with the same Samba version works fine
on a local network.

Anyone else seen this?
