Terminal server profiles are special profiles for terminal server sessions.
When you devide normal profiles and terminal server profiles you can for 
example use local profiles on workstations for domain accounts and 
romaing profiles on the terminal servers - for the same user account.

this means that the pdc have to be able to differ if the machine where 
the user logs on is a terminal server or not and deliver the appropriate 
information of the location of the profiles.

ts-profiles are necessary when you have a terminal server farm/ cluster 
because the user should have the same profile on every terminal server.

on windows nt4 (and higher) it is possible to differ between this two 
kinds of profiles.
