Why not use winbind? If that doesn't suit your needs (maybe you need to authenticate with both NIS from a UNIX box and Samba from a PDC) then try combining them together with LDAP?

Subject: [Samba] NIS authentication on samba

Hello all,
   I am currently using NIS for authentication with clear text
passwords. We would like to move to password encryption. Any ideas
whether NIS would support encrypted password on samba 3.X ? if not what
would be my other options.
