[Samba] net ads join fails when specifying domain controller

I am seeing in some folks Active Directory environments where specifying
a domain controller with the net ads join command fails. It will work
when not specifying a domain controller. For instance:
net -k ads join FOO.COM -S DC.FOO.COM # fails
net -k ads join FOO.COM # works
The fail message is:
Failed to join domain: failed to lookup DC info for domain 'FOO.COM' over rpc: Logon failure
When successful, the same domain controller that fails when specified,
is actually the domain controller that is picked by the net ads join!
Any ideas here? I'm stumped.
