Thank you Mark

but it doesn't feels the same to me...

In subsequent tests I wasn't able any more even to join. The first time was
a lucky one, woodoo.

I discovered, that the generated smb.conf was not enough for an AD-DC.

Despite having:

server role = active directory domain controller

... the default settings for:

domain logons = no (?)
domain master = auto (aka equally NO)
local master = yes

(not specifically mentioned in the generated smb.config)

... where enough for Windows7 and Windows8 (?), but not for Windows XP

After setting 

domain master = YES 

... I could join the WindowsXP and login.

I also added then (to be sure ;) domain logons = YES.

This seems now to work. I'll test tomorrow joins with another clients.

What remains, is the question, why a "server role = active directory domain
controller" doesn't enable "domain logons" by default?
