[Samba] PDC Shows up as a domain

My Samba server acting as a PDC shows up as an empty domain on my
Windows clients under "My Network Places".
My PDC is called "PDC" and my domain is called "SOC". I see PDC and SOC
in "My Network Places".
Another strange problem is when I use the Windows Server Manager tool
from servtools.exe, it says "Cannot find the Primary DC for PDC". Why
is it looking for the PDC and not the Domain?
My settings are below in case that helps.
