[Samba] NT Group to single unix ID

Hello Samba Gurus,
I have been searching for a week for a solution to this problem 
with no resolution thus far.  I have a need to map an NT Group
(a large group of NT users) to a single unix user ID.  I guess
I am asking for an example of the smb.conf and users.map file.

We have hundreds of NT users in various user groups.  For example.

NT_Group_1 needs to map to single unix account 'account 1'
NT_Group_2 needs to map to single unix account 'account 2'

We are using domain security.  Users who access a unix share with an account in the NT_Group_1 should have have effective UID of the account1 unix account.  We cannot do this with individual NT account names in users.map due to the large number of users and the frequency of the updates that will be needed.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
