I guess this is why you need a PDC so I suggest what works for me:

Set up a Samba PDC, using LDAP.

Have the other severs get unix user credentials from PDC via winbind. 
Now SIDs are consistent on all servers.

If you need consistent Unix uids as well use an Ldap Idmap which is 
accessed by all your servers.
