[Samba] Samba connecting to a Samba PDC

I have one machine setup as a Samba PDC and a second samba machine that
I would like to be able to have authenticate through the first so that,
hopefully, I don't have to do any synching of passwd files. By what I
have read, it doesn't look like this is possible directly with samba?
To further complicate things, the second machine is running MacOS-X, so
winbind isn't available. As well, instead of having a useradd or
adduser command it uses a daemon called lookupd that appears to do all
the authentication (although it seems it might be configured to use the
/etc/passwd file if necessary).
As I'm running on two different platforms, Linux and MacOS-X, I'm not
sure what my options are. I could get NIS+ installed on the Linux
machine, but I'm not sure whether or not it will work on the Mac system.
Any thoughts on what I might be able to do?
