If we want to be precise: This info is supposed to be correct after a
successful login, either via Kerberos or via NTLM, i.e. wbinfo -a.
Also, you might want to describe that we cache successful logins
indefinitely, so wbinfo -r will output stale information if group
memberships change in AD and the user has not re-logged in after that

Hope that helps,
