[Samba] Creating a trust on an unstable network

I would like to create a trust between a Samba domain and a Win2K
domain. The Samba domain connects via VPN to the Win2K domain.

The Samba domain users need access to files on the Win2K domain and a
trust would make it easier to handle permissions on the files.

However the VPN connection isn't very stable and drops the connection
every day or two.

The Samba Howto says this is a bad thing to try, but doesn't say why. 

What exactly happens in this situation when the connection between the
domains is dropped?
