I found the solution:

I tried the srvmgr tool from microsoft to get connected to my samba 3
domain (from an XP client).
And this tool told me the same "There is no PDC found for your domain.
You may go on but but your rights may be
Restricted." As I logged on I saw that both my PDC and BDC where BDCs.
I stopped my BDC. Logged on to my PDC and remembering that I had also
smbd4wins running on the same machine
I restarted smbd4wins and then samba  and everithing worked fine. I
could join the vista client to the domain on the fly.

Betreff: Windows vista ultimate samba 3.0.31

Hello to all

I have setup samba 3.0.31 as PDC successful with xp clients. Now I have
a vista ultimate pc which I cannot join to the domain. The error message
when I try to join to the domain is: The Domain is unavailable or the
connection could not be established.

What I've done so far:

Run secpol.msc --> Local Plicies-->Security Options -->Lan Manager
authentication level-->changed it to: LM and NTLM- use NTLMV2 session
security if negotiated.

Had someone did the trick??
