	You can have a local network using your BDC if it is
the Master server of the network, yes it is possible, just
follow the Samba Official HOWTO recommendation.

	You can also have all the servers using the same LDAP
backend, but that's a different story, the above model is the
recommended one.

	You need "domain logons = yes" to be the PDC.

	The PDC needs to update the LDAP Master always, there are
lots of things going on, computers change their passwords, people
changes their passwords... You could use some strategy of data
replication between the LDAPs to try to reduce the traffic, but it
is also a different story.

	Kind regards,
