Authentication through Transitive Trusts

I have an Active Directory with SUPTRA at the top and 2 other AD
servers, KAMA and CAMP.

If Samba joins KAMA, it can authenticate against KAMA and/or SUPTRA, but
not CAMP.  wbinfo -u shows users from all 3 servers, but wbinfo -m only
shows SUPTRA.

KAMA and CAMP have an implicit transitive trust, but I can't seem to get
Samba to use it.  The authentication request is sent to KAMA, but it
gets NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER.  (Same results if it joins CAMP and tries
to authenticate against KAMA.)

Is there some trick to using transitive trusts (SAMBA_3_0)?
