just point all your samba machines at the same ldap server...
you can add tls security if needed.
I have ~10 machines authenticating against a single ldap server.
It took me a while to work out the security issues. Make sure to read
the latest ldap docs - even if you're using an older version. The newer
docs are clearer on the security stuff.

I fear that idea (you have no way of knowing that the db files are
synced before you scp) - instead use slurpd for replication if you need
to distribute the load. I've not replicated my db yet...
