The domain controllers have to see machine account. I have a setup like
yours but on the pdc my nss setup is:

base  o=umd.umich.edu
#nss_base_passwd ou=People

so the whole tree is searched while on other machines it is:

base  o=umd.umich.edu
nss_base_passwd ou=People

and here the machines account are not seen.
