Windows privileges are local to the machine on which they are assigned.
The privlieges assigned on the Samba host have no relation to
privileged on the local clients.

Local groups on domain members ?  or domain local groups on
the DC's.  I'm not sure exactly what you are asking for here.
You can have domain local groups using the group mapping
functionality, but IIRC domain local groups (in nt4) are only
available between DC's.
