In the old NT4 model I think it was up to the client to decide who to send
the authentication request to. I also seem to remember the BDC was
preferred over the PDC as it was assumed the BDC would have less load.

In short I think the clients get to choose based on what they can see in
the network browser and/or WINS. If both the PDC and BDC are WINS serves
you could list the priority for the WINS servers and add the static entries
to get the desired result.

IMHO I would always try to get authenticate against the local server and
look at propagation between PDC & BDC if there is a syncronisation
constraint.
