witch samba version are you using?

if you use 3_0 or HEAD
passdb backend = ldapsam_nua, unixsam

should work for you

_nua means that we have a non unix account range
anf account in the range would not be check against the
local unix accounts via nss_*  (/etc/passwd or nss_ldap)

BTW: there are no files attached to your mail...
