Primary and secondary domain controllers are for NT - they do not apply in active directory Windows 2000.

As Julian said - there are no PDC/BDCs under W2K/3 per se. Instead there are five FSMO roles including the PDC-emulator. The following is a dump of the DUMPFSMO.VBS script from the resource script. It lists the five role holders.

@echo off
REM
REM Script to dump FSMO role owners on the server designated by %1
REM

if ""=="%1" goto usage

ntdsutil roles Connections "Connect to server %1" Quit "select Operation Target" "List roles for connected server" Q Q Q

goto done

:usage

@echo Please provide the name of a domain controller (i.e. dumpfsmos MYDC)
@echo.

:done
