If I have a samba server join an NT domain that I do not control, what
control do the domain admins have over my server?

We have a campus wide domain that has all nt username/passwords in it.  So
if I configure samba for 

security = domain
password server = asuntdomain

Do the domain admins have any power over the samba server?  Wont it be
limited to any local *nix accounts?  And, do I gain anything? (less
authentication overhead? logon scripts?)
