everything else locally?

dear list members
is it possible to only have the users authenticate against an external
ldap server and everything else managed locally on the samba server?
the problem is that i only can authenticate against the central ldap
but not write to it. this means that samba "root" as well as all
machine accounts have to be managed locally and the users' homes
information is retrieved by nis.
in the manual page of smb.conf i read the following:
"Multiple backends can be specified, separated by spaces. The backends
will be searched in the order they are specified. New users are always
added to the first backend specified."
now, when i define the passdb backends as following in this order does
my intention work?
passdb backend = tdbsam ldapsam:ldaps://ldaps01.domain.com
"root" is defined locally in tdbsam, all users in ldap. machines are
also added locally.
