You would need to configure nsswitch.conf for LDAP, not winbind, on the
Unix side.  The exact procedure depend on your OS and version.  On
Linux, you would make use of the nss_ldap package.  There are quite a
few tutorial on the subject on the Web so I will not dig too deeply in
the details.

Also, it is outside the scope the Samba.
