Yes, you can use samba as a PDC, and use another
server as a wins server, but due to complications and
very little and confussing documentation, and very
little resources on using samba as a PDC, i wouldnt
migrate that kind of network structure to depend on a
samba as a pdc, im just trying to do the same for a
small network of 11 pcs and im still fighting to do
so, im not sure thats a good idea.

But, this is only my opinion.
