from the Samba NT Domain FAQ...

2.6.  I keep getting the message "trust account xxx should be in
DOMAIN_GROUP_RID_USERS."  What do I need to do?

Nothing.  This is a note that one of the developers put in 
to remind him of a issue that is yet to be resolved.  It is
harmless and should be ignored.  If you find it filling up 
your debug logs, you can set it to be logged at a higher level.  
Edit passdb/sampass.c and locate the string.  Then change 
the debug level from 0 to 3 or higher.
