As a follow up to myself. I narrowed it down to this:

On the PDC I can do:    id -Gn userB     and it shows that the user is in the 
correct group and has the correct effective permissions.

On the member server, I do:  id -Gn userB     and it tells me the effective 
group of the user is none  This is actually happening for 2 users and I'm at 
a lost to explain this. All my wbinfo -u / -g ,etc.. show the users to be 
part of the group, yet their effective permissions are showing them as none.

As far as I am aware I only need to add users to /etc/group in order to add 
them to a "NT group", right? As long as that group is mapped of course and it 
is, since the 10 other people have no issue.

How to solve this?
