OK so I tried updating the privileges on the BDC's with the following 

net -Uadminstrator rpc rights grant 'STROZLLC\Domain Admins' 

and I get the following error
Failed to grant privileges for STROZLLC\Domain Admins 

I am sure that all machines are running 3.0.11 becuase in the log.nmbd 
in shows the version during elections.  Any ideas?
