I'm no Samba expert, but my understanding of how I've set this system
up is that authentication on the Linux side happens via Winbind, and
Winbind uses the keytab generated by Samba when you "net ads join".
The end of chapter 21 in the official Samba HOW-TO discusses
leveraging Winbind for authenticating services other than Samba.

But don't quote me on this...
