Can you (or someone else) please explain this because either, I'm too
dumb or too sleepy. From what I can see, your samba server IS a PDC.

If you want SL1 to be a member of CHEMBMB, you need to:

        domain logons = No
        security = DOMAIN


        # net rpc join ((or net ads join))

Am I missing something here?
