They are adding support for multiple account database backends to the NT
Domain controller code for an upcoming version of Samba and LDAP is one of
the ones that appears to be planned for support "out of the box".

I don't think that part of the code is in a useable state yet.

That's just what I have gathered from the samba-ntdom mailing list.  I'm
not working on it myself so I could be wrong :)
