[Samba] User Authenication

I have Samba running on a couple of IBM RS/6000 servers running AIX 4.3.3. I
have Samba configured to do user authenication to the primary domain
controller. The only way that users are able to map to the share is if they
have a userid  on the unix server. I thought that as long as a user is
authenicated at the PDC an account on the unix server would not be
necessary. Is an account on the unix server a requirement of Samba and I
just missed it in the documentation? If this is not a requirement what
options do I need to set? 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
