Using PAM to keep smbpasswd and passwd/shadow in sync

I'm running Samba 1.9.18p10 under Linux kernel 2.0.35 with PAM.
We are in the process of shifting to full encrypted passwords
However, the user's main UNIX password needs to be kept in sync
with Samba. PAM would seem to make this easy. However, the
/etc/pam.d/samba entry on my system reads like this:
auth required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so nullok shadow
account required /lib/security/pam_unix_acct.so
This doesn't look like it's going to update smbpasswd. Will it?
If not, what do I need to do to make PAM keep the two passwords
in sync? Please accept my apologies if I have completely
misunderstood something. I did some searches on the archives,
but I couldn't find what I needed.
