Oops, something wrong with your permissions ie. no admin rights for your
domain account on the nt wkstn or vice versa or both ??? It works for
me, however I've added my samba_domain\joeuser to the local Admins group
on the nt wkstn !

net localgroup /domain  then shows up the "local groups on the PDC":
  *Account Operators        *Administrators           *Backup Operators
  *Guests                   *Power Users              *Print Operators
  *Replicator               *System Operators         *Users

Like with a "real" MS NT server these groups IMHO make no sense for
domain administration, I think in 2.0.5a they are just show up for the
sake of some compatibility issues...
The "global groups" in the domain are more interesting,

net group /domain  should return  *Domain Admins  on a 2.0.5a PDC

As I understood from the docs that's the only domain group available in
Samba 2.0.xx and _all_ users belong to it by default (tell me if I'm
wrong), so better don't try to add this group to your local admins. I
haven't checked the domain group support in 2.1.xx yet, maybe there's
exectly what we need :-)
However, with 2.0.5a you can add single Samba domain members to local
groups on the nt wkstn using the local user manager (it didn't work
with  net localgroup  on  my site), but that's certainly no solution for
a great amount of domain user accounts...
