[Samba] Max Users Per Controller ?

Just a general sort of question here. We're looking to deploy a samba
domain here and I'm curious as to what people's experiences are with the
number of users to each Domain Controller. John Terpstra's (as per
Samba HOWTO and By Example books (great books, btw)) recommendations are
30-150 user to one controller if the controller is giving out shares, or
about 150 users to one controller, if it is a dedicated controller
handling only login services.
I'm curious, what experiences other people have.
Also; if I have a single subnet with say 250 users on it, which has
topped out the domain controllers bandwidth for login services - how is
load balancing done between two domain controllers on that subnet?
Thanks in advance for any replies!
