Windows 2000 DC claims trust is broken with NT domain

I have a Windows 2000 DC that says the trust is broken between it and a NT domain. All the rest of the DC's in the domain do not have a problem with the trust to the NT domain -- just this one DC. What is the cause and how do you fix it?
The trust relationship for a Windows NT 4.0 machine is maintained with the Windows 2000 server that is holding the PDC emulator role. Check the Active Directory User and Computers to see which server is the PDC emulator. I suspect that the server you are seeing is the PDC emulator. You will want to delete and reestablish the trust relationship. You could try to use NLTEST to reset the secure channel.
