Is there a simple way to find out of the DC has restrict-anonymous set?

In our environment, which is a NAS, we would like to be able to inform the 
administators that they need to create/supply an account for winbindd to 
do its magic. This might also be needed if they are connecting our NAS to 
a native-mode AD domain.

Is there something simple that we can do with wbinfo to determine this? 
Since we have already asked them for an account that has privilege to join 
the domain, perhaps we should try to get back the pwnam entry for that 
account, and if it fails with anonymous access, clearly we need some real 
account details (which might be the account used to join the domain).
