[Samba] domain authentication from a samba server in a samba domain

I have a box running 3.0.7 that is running my domain. I added another samba
server at another location to host a few shares for that building. I
successfully joined the second machine to the domain and set the 'password
server' option correctly.
In order to get the second machine to give me anything other than
NT_STATUS_LOGIN_FAILURE, I have to create a dummy UNIX account for the domain
user and 'smbpasswd -a' it. After this, it will use domain authentication
correctly for that user only. I know it is doing domain auth because I set the
password with 'smbpasswd -a' to something different than the domain password.
The domain password works and the local one doesn't.
While this is a workaround, I don't want to have to add dummy UNIX accounts on
the 2nd machine for every domain user that should have access to this particular
share. How can I set this up so I don't have to do that? I don't really care
about the permissions on the share (multiple domain users accessing as the same
UNIX user is okay).
