[Samba] wbinfo behavior when run on PDC

I expected identical behavior from wbinfo and related tools, regardless
of whether run on the PDC or a member workstation, but that's not the
case. I want to know if this is a possible problem or not. (Domain name
is "musicplace".) Particularly:
From the PDC:
* "wbinfo --getdcname musicplace" fails, returning "Could not get dc
name for musicplace"
from any member workstation:
* "wbinfo --getdcname musicplace" succeeds, correctly returning
Note that "net rpc testjoin" and "wbinfo -t" both succeed on the PDC.
I'm wondering if this is cause for concern or not?
Also, just FYI:
This command always succeeds on workstations:
* "nmblookup -M musicplace" succeeds, returning "10.17.1.26
but initially and intermittently fails on the PDC itself.
