[Samba] Question about inter-domain trusts

I've looked in the recent archives and haven't really found anything
about this so...
I'm trying to establish a two-way trust relationship between two local
domains. The MS Win2k3 ADS server now trusts my Samba PDC (3.0.23c,
Linux 2.6.17) alright but when I try to use /net rpc trustdom establish/
I have a few problems. The key one is that I am /net rpc/ is unable to
find a domain controller.
On closer inspection I find that "net rpc trustdom establish" goes
looking for a Domain Master Browser for the target domain. But with
nmblookup and nbtstat I find there is no local DMB for the domain I want
to trust. Modifying utils/net.c:net_find_pdc() so that it looks for
Domain Controllers (type #1e) instead of DMBs (type #1b) seems to fix
the resolution problem. But is this modification semantically
correct? Or must there be a local DMB for that domain? Curiously,
there are a few error cases in net_rpc.c:rpc_trustdom_establish() where
the command carries on regardless of errors with consequent segfaults.
Wisdom gratefully received...
