What do you mean by that?  Are you saying that if I run a samba AD-DC,
samba will mess with system time?  There are so many questions here...

We already run ntp on all linux machines, including the ones where samba
ad-dc is running.

Does samba mess with system time?
Can't other (not holding PDC_Emulator role) DCs just use the system time?
What if the PDC_Emulator DC is not available or is on a remote site?

This sounds.. wrong.
