[Samba] BDC on different subnet

Hi all,

I have a BDC running samba 3.0.14a on a different subnet than the PDC. 
The PDC is running winbind and acting as wins server (wins support = 
yes). The excerpt below is from the smb.conf on the BDC:

   domain logons = Yes
   os level = 65
   preferred master = Yes
   domain master = No
   wins support = No
   wins server =

When I issue a 'smbclient -L localhost' on the BDC, I do get a list of 
machines in both subnets. However it reports the BDC as the DOMAIN 
master and I am not sure this is correct (I think not). Furthermore I 
cannot add new machines to the domain (clients get the wins IP through 
DHCP). OpenLDAP master is on the PDC and a replicated slave on the BDC.

Any ideas where I am going wrong?
