As I understand it, clients will prefer logging on to a BDC over a PDC,
and then use whichever responds quickest, so certainly all the clients
should not be logging in to one box or other - and probably least likely
to log on to the PDC of the two options.
I know that we see about a 60/40 split logins to BDC/PDC.
I don't think you should have domain master = yes set on the BDC.
Here's the settings from my BDC
netbios name = CORE02
server string = Longhill BDC (%v,%h)
workgroup = LONGHILL
interfaces = 10.108.1.8/255.255.255.0
name resolve order = host bcast wins
os level = 65
domain master = no
domain logons = yes
local master = no
preferred master = no
guest ok = yes
wins server = 10.108.1.32
Hope that helps
