I'm also not so sure. Samba knows how to deal with a ldap slave server,
so it would just follow the referrals to the master. I'm also assuming
that when adding a computer account to the domain (like net rpc join),
the client would be looking for the domain master browser netbios
resource, which only the pdc has. But I haven't tested any of this.

It can also serve files and share printers as usual, but on large
networks people tend to let it only serve logons to minimize logon
