The purpose of using glue isn't to retain the screws, it is to seal out water. So binding glue doesn't need to be super strong, but should be cold temperature resistant and waterproof.
While some people use wood glue, others believe wood glue (and Titebond) are not good choices — being water-based glues, they can lead to rusting of screws.
Recommendations from a very experienced AT binding mounter:
Another recommendation: Liquid Nails Perfect Glue is a nice acid free polymer that remains flexible and resists temps down to -60. http://www.liquidnails.com/products/high-temperature-adhesive-PG00
Epoxies may be more than needed, but as noted above, an option if you want to add some strength.
Anybody have any other recommendations or tips?
