On the Samba PDC:
Try adding something like this to your global section:
interfaces = eth0,
bind interfaces only = Yes
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
Using your interfaces and IP addresses. If any IP aliases are being used use 
the IP addresses for "interfaces =" (ex: instead of device names 

On the client:
  IsDomainMaster False
