[Samba] Kerberos auth without NTLM

Can anyone tell me if I can configure Samba 3.x to rely only on Kerberos authentication (in an AD domain)?
Ideally I'd like to use local UNIX accounts, not winbind, and negate the need for me to add an entry to passdb, then the
account must exist in AD and locally on each Samba member server for authentication to work.
If there is any info held in passdb, other than the NTLM coded password, which must exist for Samba to work then I'd 
like to either enter an unusable password or disable NTLM authentication completely. Reason for my second request 
is if I am forced to have users in passdb I don't want to have to worry about the data being world readable from a 
security perspective.

Any thoughts much apprectiated,

	thanks Andy.
