Thanks for the response, Jerry.

Is there a way for me to verify this is happening?
Winbindd has been running for a few days now, and I just did a netstat and
the only connections to a DC are to the off-site one, the PDC.

Is should match one on the local subnet, but it binds to the 
PDC for a period of time after it has first joined the domain.
15 minutes or so IIRC.
