You should include identical configuration on your BDC as your PDC.
While clients should not contact the BDC, for the small price of a few
scripts, I like a deterministic outcome.  

Samba knows little of the PDC/BDC distinction, as the master/slave ldap
detail is back in the LDAP backend, and not seen except in the form of
chased referrals.  (I have run multiple 'PDC' machines, where I have
separate subnets, as well as had a PDC back to the slave ldap server).
