May be this works. We are useing encrypted passwords on SAMBA for NT, 
but also some old dos-clients that don't use encrypted passwords.

That's tru

Use one SAMBA-Server with a smbpasswd file, may be your NIS-Server 
(this makeing password sycn. a bit easier). And for the other 
SAMA-Servers use "security = server" (or may be "security = domain")
