The 'workgroup' parameter in the smb.conf file should specify
which domain winbind authenticates against.

I don't think Samba can be a member of multiple domains although
it may be possible to hack something up.  There's no reason why
winbindd can't create users that are in many unrelated domains
and then use security=server to authenticate them, apart from the
whole security=server business being inherently dodgy.

I'm not familiar with this parameter.
