No, it doesn't. While I don't know all the possible combinations, this is one 
that does work, and what we have here:

-NT4 PDC and BDCs
-Domain users login from any NT/Win2K client and do a "net use H: 
/home" in a common script. (Actually, they use KIX to do a "use H: 
@homeshr" but it's the same thing).
-Samba box using winbind to get users from PDC.
-All home share info is contained on PDC, pointing at the user share on 
the samba box.

We have ~400 users with home shares on samba, and another ~100 with 
home shares still on NT, and it works fine.

Hope this helps...
