What about your testparm. It should look like this:
Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_BDC  <--------------This is important to work as
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

If you have a winsserver setup "your wins" all clients will lookup the wins,
if you have 
Point it to use your pdc for wins in there network settings.
To have a real wins substitute running you should install samba4wins working
for me with repl
And sec. wins on pdc and bdc.
When you watch your clients log on you would see that they are more log on
to the bdc than the pdc.
So watch out to keep your users data in sync.

Betreff: [Samba] BDC Server Settings Doubts?

  Hi people.

  I have finally my PDC+BDC running with LDAP+replicaon different subnets.

  My doubts are simple, I want to understand a little more about BDC.
  My network is this:

   Domaine Name=DOMA
   BDC= wins server = PDC

   As u can see, both serves exist on different subnets,I want to save
bandwidth,this is the reason I setup a BDC in my other network, now,
what are the correct settings for the network browser for my BDC:

        preferred master = No (Just the PDC)
        wins server =  (PDC IP)
        wins support = No  (Just the PDC=yes)
        domain logons = Yes
        domain master = No   (This just for the PDC)
        local master = Yes   ??????

   This are right for my BDC?, every time I setup a BDC on different
subnet do I have to use local master = Yes? or this wouldn't make any

   Samba 3.3.x Centos 5.5.

LIving the dream...
