I don't know about winbind but i suspect the mechanism is similar to
what i have at home, where i put:

hosts: files wins dns

in nsswitch.conf. the order is important. provided you have the
libnss_wins.so or something like that of course

so i suspect you just have to put winbind before dns in you nsswitch, or
you could go with wins
