Time is synchronized via NTP and kinit works fine, however, I've done 
ntpdate with dc0 for sure:

dc1 samba # ntpdate dc0.klin.kifato-mk.com
23 May 20:37:21 ntpdate[28533]: adjust time server offset 
-0.016606 sec

Also I've noticed that after successful initial (first run after net 
vampire) DNS records update I get the following in my samba.log:
dc1 samba # cat  var/samba.log | grep -A 2 -B 1 TSIG
[Sun May 23 14:02:18 2010 MSD, 0 
/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: ; TSIG error with server: tsig 
verify failure
[Sun May 23 14:02:18 2010 MSD, 0 
/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: update failed: REFUSED
----------[output truncated]----------

Also, I've tried to rejoin Samba (by deleting /usr/local/samba entirely, 
invoking "metadata cleanup" in ntdsutil, deleting computer object in AD 
U&C and cleaning up DNS entries), result is slightly different - the log 
still floods with errors (more than 6 hours already). And yes, at least 
part of replication is working - I may modify users/computers objects in 
AD U&C and the changes will be synchronized in tens of seconds. However 
- I still want to try Samba as the only DC in domain (and need to 
transfer roles before demoting dc0).
