Currently nss_winbind is not required for smbd on a domain controller,
all testing I've done yet was without it (I tested with the source4/winbindd
on 4.0/4.1 and the source3/winbindd on master).

I'd also like to understand what changes with nss_winbindd in place,
as it should not alter the behaviour.
