machines that aren't joined to the domain can have any workgroup
assigned that they wish - but of course this means that the benefits a
single point logon to domain to obtain access to resources is lost.
Otherwise, you would need multiple domain controllers (or instances) and
trusts between the domains. I believe that this topic is covered in the
'How-To' at www.samba.org
