That's a big site :-)

Then perhaps the NT domain modal of 'service domains' and 'resource
domains' might be the right solution.  However, I still suggest one
massive domain, as Samba's domain trust (between DCs) support still has
some issues.

You don't want TDBs, because you must have the same database on each and
every DC in the domain.  Even if you create resource domains, by using
tdbsam, we remove the ability to have a BDC at that site.
