[Samba] Problem joining klient on a BDC

I have set up a Samba-environment with , at the moment, one PDC and three
BDC's. LDAP-master at the PDC and slaves on the BDC's.
I can logon to the domain through whichever DC is choosen but when i try to
join a machine the PDC MUST be available. The client seems to check among the
avilable DC's but if the PDC is down it just tells me it can't find a
domain-controller for the domain.
If the PDC is up and running it gets selected to process the join.
As I understand it, it should be possible to join a machine via the BDC as
long as the LDAP-master is available. Correct?
If I configure the BDC with "Domain master = yes" it is accepted as a "valid
DC" and joining the client works.
The client i have tested with is WinXP SP2.
Anyone have any ideas or corrections?
It's not a major showstopper but for redundancy and load-balancing it would be
nice to get this working if possible. After all the domaincontrollers reside
in 4 different cities...
