[Samba] samba and kerberos

I'm trying to understand what kerberos support samba has.

If I have a windows XP client with MIT Kerberos for Windows, AND I
authenticate to a KDC, will I then be able to use those kerberos auth
credentials to access shares in samba?  

My ignorance here is what happens to the NTLM password hashes. Samba
is going to expect a password hash. Can samba be configured to ask a
kdc if a kerberos auth token is real?
