I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to say here, but a Samba AD
Domain is a multi-master configuration.  There are some FSMO roles, but
the vast majority of operations are conducted equally on any DC, and so
for most purposes, there is no master/slave.

The notable exception is the RODC, but that is a very different beast.
