While the man page doesn't explicitly say that NTLM is used instead of 
kerberos; I believe the intent of this setting is to have samba talk 
with AD using only NT4 domain member style communications (RPC and NTLM) 
and not ADS style communications (LDAP and kerberos).  It's worth trying 
if you haven't already.

 From man smb.conf:

winbind rpc only (G)

     Setting this parameter to yes forces winbindd to use RPC instead of 
LDAP to retrieve information from Domain Controllers.

     Default: winbind rpc only = no
