You just proved why calling your DC a 'PDC' is a bad idea ;-)

What I was trying to suggest was, if you set up Samba just as you are 
now, but without the jails, and everything worked, this would heavily 
point to your problems being something to do with the jails, something 
that has nothing to do with Samba. Conversely, if you do still have the 
same errors, it has nothing to do with jails.
