Samba 3 is perfectly suitable as a NT4 style PDC.
Unless you meant that it can not run as an Active Directory domain
controller, which would be correct; but even WinXP Pro is happy as a
domain member of an NT4 style domain. The only things you don't get
are enhanced user, machine policy configurations; but even that isn't
too hard to fake with the WinXP Resource Kit.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
