"Samba-3 cannot function as a BDC to an MS Windows NT4 PDC, and Samba-3
cannot function correctly as a PDC to an MS Windows NT4 BDC. Both Samba-3
and MS Windows NT4 can function as a BDC to its own type of PDC."

"Samba-3 is not able to be a domain controller within an Active Directory
tree, and it cannot be an Active Directory server. This means that Samba-3
also cannot act as a BDC to an Active Directory domain controller."

Of course, this page is probably out-of-date.  I find I have to dig through
man pages and release notes for up-to-date info.

Yes, it will. I'm using 3.5 and it works fine.
