Are you using samba 2.2 or 3.0?
With samba 3.0 you can specify this in smb.conf

ldap suffix = dc=brgs,dc=org
ldap machine suffix = ou=Machines
ldap user suffix = ou=People

But AFAIR this is not possible with samba 2.2, beside this options are
missing it still requieres a unix account for every machine trust

Another way to make the directory more clear would be to put the machine
trust accounts into a sub-ou below ou=People.
