jj at dreckspatz:~$ smbpasswd -h
When run by root:
    smbpasswd [options] [username]
    smbpasswd [options]

  -L                   local mode (must be first option)
  -h                   print this usage message
  -s                   use stdin for password prompt

^^^^ that's the option you want to use...
