[Samba] combining local users or smbpasswd users and NTDOMAIN users in LDAP

My last question went unanswered - probably because of the confused way
that I asked it.

I have a new samba server - joined to domain - running LDAP - imported
the local users with the migration script into LDAP - life is good.

Now I want to import the Users and Groups from my domain on WinNT - I
found the migration scripts (RH 9 AS 3 - SMB 3.0.0)

I import them and they will undoubtedly number from 1000+ and my local
users uid start at 500. Local users don't have Samba designations -
Samba Users don't have local accounts - I want accounts to be both local
(local home directory, mail accounts etc.) and to be Samba enabled too
(Domain - profilePath - homePath - logonScript) - Do then use migration
samba supplied script to import local users instead of the script
supplied with openldap which made them local accounts? Do users created
using the samba supplied migration scripts get the local account
information too?
