Your information is incomplete. What are the NT4 and Win2K machines? Are
they running the Server version or the workstation version of Windows?
If they are running the server version then how are they configured?

Short answer:

If you want the clients that log onto Samba to execute a logon script,
then yes, Samba must be set up as a PDC and your clients must be
configured as domain members.
