[Samba] hohsts equiv

Having got a little further through the debugging session, I now read in 
the manpage for smb.conf that Windows NT doesn't supply a password to 
Samba. My backup server is WinNT and needs access to the Samba shares to 
back the data up; it's also the PDC, so is theoretically the source for 
password confirmations. How does this one work - can a PDC in fact supply a 
password for itself, or should I be asking if there's a more secure way to 
grant it access than using 'hosts equiv'?

Many thanks,
Vicky Clarke
