If the windows machine can not find the dns server via wins it will
try to use DNS instead.

I do not use ADS or WINS so in my samba network I have the following
entries in my root zone for my bind dns servers to point the windows
boxes to the PDC:

_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.radimg.pitt.edu. SRV 0 100 389 sysyserv0.radimg.pitt.edu
_kerberos._tcp.dc._msdcs.radimg.pitt.edu. SRV 0 100 88 sysserv0.radimg.pitt.edu
