What happens if the BDC is unavailable (You could simulate this by 
setting up iptables rules to drop all traffic from a given workstation)? 
The way I understand it, workstations will use what ever DC is "closest" 
to them. If the PDC is taking longer to respond or something then they 
may consider the BDC to be the best choice.
