[Samba] Member Server creates Samba Domain in LDAP

Hello everyone,

my environment consists of a Samba PDC on a Linux box, and another Samba
server on Linux that acts as a member server. The PDC runs against an
LDAP database.

When I join the member server to the PDC, everything works fine, except
there is an entry "sambaDomainName=LX03" (LX03 is the name of the member
server) created in the LDAP root (additionally to the machine Account
in my ou=Computers).

Is this behaviour ok, do I need the entry in the LDAP root for my member
