Home Directories on a Windows 2000/2003 Server

I set my Macs running OSX 10.3.5 with Active Directory to use home directories running off a Windows 2000 server. Occasionally I get an error when users log in that says "The user home directory is located on an AFP or SMB server and could not be connected." I press ok, log in again, and have no trouble using the account. I don't know how to replicate the problem because it is so intermittent. We are using a Windows 2003 server for authenication and host the home directories on another Win2000 server. When I switched some of the home directories to the Windows 2003 server, i keep getting "The user home directory is located on an AFP or SMB server and could not be connected." But if I am logged into an account running on the Windows 2000 server, and I go to "connect to server" put the smb address of the Windows 2003 server, I get a list of shares and am not asked to authenticate. Does anyone have any suggestions on to what to try? Thanks
