As I understand it the Samba server couldn't be a PDC for its own
separate domain if I was to use winbind and make it a member of another
win2003 domain.

Is it possible to use winbind in such a way that it can provide for
authentication of uses in a win2003 trusted domain without requiring the
samba server to be a member of that domain?

Are you using winbind? If not, that explains your observations.
