I appreciate the additional information here, but that doesn't really
answer my question, as short and unnuanced as it was.

Why does a multi-homed DC lead to those things as a matter of course?

What's the underlying issue in Samba that leads to these problems?

Why can't Samba workaround the underlying issue to allow multi-homed DCs to
function correctly?

Is this a fundamental issue of the SMB protocol? Or an implementation bug
in other implementations of SMB that Samba can't provide a workaround for?
