I have exactly the same problem you have. I wonder i you found a solution.
I came to the conclusion it is a bug in Samba.

I have a setup very similar to yours (Samba PDC and BDC). If I have a
Windows member server I can mount its shares with the PDC down, but if the
member server is Samba then I can't mount its shares bacause it refuses to
authenticate against the BDC.
The worst part is that tried changing the PDC into a BDC setting 
domain master = no and it does work (with the former BDC down).

I tried with the following versions: 3.0.1, 3.0.2a, 3.0.3pre2 and none of
them worked.

I even tried with 2.2.8a and it also  didn't work.
