[Samba] Domain member, security = ADS|domain and trusts with NT4

I presently have a Samba server (3.0.21b) set up as a member server in 
an NT4 domain (with a real Windows NT4 PDC). We are migrating to an 
Active Directory domain (with a real Windows 2003 domain controller).

We have set up a two-way trust between the old NT4 domain "CLUNKY" and 
the new ADS domain "SLEEK" (aka sleek.local). The Samba server is a 
member of the CLUNKY domain (security = domain) and authentication is 
against the PDC for the CLUNKY domain.

How can I ensure that users in both CLUNKY and SLEEK can access the 
Samba server? Will joining the Samba server to SLEEK with security = ADS 
allow this? Will Samba honor the domain trust?
