W2K3 Joins Samba PDC without a Miaoo! What's buzz it cannot?

Still dumbfound - just joined a W2K3 to a Samba domain without any glitch.
Samba 3.0.25 PDC + LDAP, unencrypted, no reg patch applied, joined, could not be easier, just like an XPP.

This is not a BDC or any kind of Domain Controller of course, but it can be used for a number of useful applications:
Run windows specific server application for multi-tier systems like ERPs; Exchange, sometime required for the latter; Share files; terminal services; MSSQL, and, for the perversive, IIS, the webserver (in case you took up liking .net ) !

No errors in the logs, no visible problems either.
With little knowledge of the internals I gather it works like a XPP workstation, covered by domain group security.

Can someone comment on the subj - I would really like to understand what's happening and what's the catch.
