[Samba] Sync Linux <-> NT Domain passwords

Is there a way to syncronise the Windows Domain passwords
with the linux account passwords?

SAMBA passes authentication to an NT box

password server = *

Users have local accounts on the Linux box and get access to SAMBA shares
depending on which group (linux) they belong to and if their authentication
credentials were correct.

I've tried synchronising their passwords so when they change their Windows
password it changes their
Linux password, but unfortunately that doesn't happen.

unix password sync = Yes
security = domain
wins server = <NT Box>

Is there any way to achieve this???
