To work around this problem:
Create an %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Etc\LMHOSTS file on each BDC that conains:
<IP Address of PDC> <PDC Name> #PRE #DOM:<Domain Name>
<IP Address of PDC> "<Domain Name> \0x1c" #PRE
<IP Address of PDC> "<Domain Name> \0x1b" #PRE

"123456789012345\0x1?"to insure that the spacing is exact. Example:
192.168.1.10 JSI001 #PRE #DOM:JSI 192.168.1.10 "JSI \0x1c" #PRE 192.168.1.10 "JSI \0x1b" #PREOn each BDC, type:
