I found the answer.
The problem was caused by "unknow type" in the group type field.
By default the builtin-domain and every new group created is marked as 
"Group type: Unknown type":

Domain Admins
         SID       : S-1-5-21-298858960-1863792627-3661451959-512
         Unix group: admins
         Group type: Unknown type
         Comment   :
         Privilege : SaAddUsers SeMachineAccountPrivilege SaPrintOp

With the command smbgroupedit and the flag "-t d" I solved some of the 
problems: the groups may be searched/imported from the XP and the ldap 
database is not "enumerated".
