[Samba] Winbindd

I am trying to have user logon used winbindd for user directory 
information and krb auth. 

The kerber logon works when NIS or /etc/password is used for user info.  
The only difference I see is winbind return a * in the password field. 

My understanding is * will prevent logons and x will allow the user to 
logon using /etc/shadow or krb auth in this case.

Is there a way to change what winbind returns?
