    and if you ping "domain_name" do you get an appropriate response from the PDC at the main office?

      Is there a firewall between the two offices? If so, that is the most likely cause of the problem. You would need to configure traffic rules to allow DNS, LDAP, etc between the two offices. Even if there is no firewall you should put a packet sniffer on the WAN or LAN interface of the main office router and see what communication is coming through from the branch office. The following article addresses this specific scenario:

        There is several diagnostic tool that can help you to find out the problem.
        One of them is netdiag Windows 2000 / 2003 support tool.
        You can also check ADCheck from NetIQ.
