No, not in my experience.
Since Samba (in "domain" mode) will forward all authentication requests to
the PDC of the domain, it just has to join the domain (which causes the PDC
to create a machine account for the Samba server automagically).

Is this command required? its for samba acting as PDC only.
from man page :
-m This option tells smbpasswd that the account being
changed is a MACHINE account. Currently this is
used when Samba is being used as an NT Primary
