No, it does not - but should/must this be the case? AFAIK wbinfo only
lists group, which are known in the DOMAIN context. However, @private
is a local unix group which is only relevant to the samba process on
server B. If I use any other local group (without users imported via
winbind) they are not listed by "wbinfo -g" as well, but still they
behave like expected.

I tried "valid users = @DOMAIN\private", (with the @ to indicate a
group) but it did not work either - which I expected because it is
not a group defined in the DOMAIN context.
