In fact, the two servers are running : the PDC make the authentification 
and the BDC make nothing.
I shut down the samba PDC, then the BDC make authentification. When the 
PDC comes back the authentification still made on the BDC.

Then if i shut down the BDC, the PDC remake the authentification, but if 
I restart the samba on BDC, BDC make authentification.

Strange, is'nt it??
