Do you mean you have two PDCs or a primary DC and a backup DC.  As I 
understand it, you can't have multiple Primary Domain Controllers on 
Samba.  PDC is enabled if you have both Domain Logons and Domain Master 
set to yes.  You can demote on to BDC by setting Domain Master to no. 
Also, only one can the WINS server. Adding the IP of the WINS server to 
the network settings
  on the clients may make it work although it shouldn't be necessary.
