    In all the cases where I've encountered this, putting a static route between
    the DCs (from one to the other) and/or using "temporary" lmhost entries to
    hard-code the respctive DC for the domains have ALWAYS helped. It usually
    appears to be DNS-related, but at the end of the day, it ends up being
    VLAN/routing issues.
