    It's probably a WINS (Server) issue.

    For legacy trusts to work you need NetBIOS resolution which
    for multiple Domains OR multiple subnets practically means
    that you need WINS Server(s).

    All DCs (and the PDC/BDC in NT) as well as clients need to
    be WINS "CLIENTS" of the same WINS "database"*.

    This is true even of "servers" because they must both REGISTER
    themselves with WINS Server AND use WINS to find each other.

    * Same WINS database == either same WINS Server or a "set of
    WINS servers that replicate with each other."
