thanks for not wasting BW, setup a small web server and use a dynamic DNS service such as www.no-ip.com (no affiliation to the site)...
well, it seems that your server B is taking the right password, is it able to find the login shell for the account? its been a while since I don't have access to a linux box... check /var/log/messages or /var/log/secure for clues..
take a look at http://samba.idealx.org/samba-ldap-howto.pdf, it does not say anything about setting a remote client, maybe if you post your config files you could get more help...maybe...
are you sure you are not blocking each server from talking to each other? check your ipfilters/ipchains config on both servers.....
