[Samba] wbinfo on a PDC

My situation is that I have a PDC with LDAP and samba and a member 
server with samba/winbind. I can get a full NT user and group listing 
from the member server using  wbinfo but the PDC returns the error message.

Both give the same results when getent passwd and group are run and net 
groupmap list produces identical groupmaps but the shares on the member 
are inaccessable from client PCs.

All I really need to know is whether wbinfo -u & -g will produce a list 
or users or groups on the PDC if it is correctly functioning or whether  
the fact that it's a PDC makes wbinfo redundant. Is the failure to 
produce a list a fault or a feature ;)
