For samba on debian this works:

auth            sufficient      pam_winbind.so
auth            required        pam_unix.so nullok
account         sufficient      pam_winbind.so
account         required        pam_unix.so
session         required        pam_unix.so
password        required        pam_unix.so

Also what do the getent & wbinfo tests show?  Do they work?
