I believe the question was how they can make /usr/bin/passwd
cause Samba passwords to be updated.  If a Unix (Linux) user
runs /usr/bin/passwd, it should not change just their Unix
password but should also change their LM and NT passwords.
At least that is the request as I am reading it.

In other words, the request is how to preserve the
/usr/bin/passwd interface that Unix users may be familiar with,
while at the same time not causing that interface to cause
passwords to go out of sync.

Unfortunately, I don't know an answer to that question...
