Perhaps a slight variant of this that would be useful would be something
along the lines of "force domain = <auth domain>". The difference is
that when your samba servers are part of a resource domain that is
different than your authentication domain, the authentication would
happen against your authentication domain, rather than the (machine
only) resource domain.
