Some time ago I've deliberately taken this away from Samba 3. I wanted to
reduce the call-outs to trusted DCs as much as possible. Samba asks only our
own DC for name2sid and sid2name. In your specific problem this was not
possible? I think if your own DC can't resolve names/sids of domains it trusts
this will not be your worst problem.
