[Samba] Using LDAP, no PDC/BDC, for multiple samba servers

Is it possible to use single LDAP server and multiple samba servers?
The problem I'm having now is
Each server thinks their host name is their LDAP domain name, or
sambaDomainName, and
complain the user's SID is different so can't authenticate.
How do I make samba servers use one domain name and SID?

LDAP domain name is DOMSMB

dn: sambaDomainName=DOMSMB,dc=my-domain,dc=com
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-2479917030-3150298425-213194246

And samba server created a new domain after its hostname.

dn: sambaDomainName=SRV6,dc=my-domain,dc=com
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-4202146032-850913369-3381557932
And complain user's SID is different from its SID.
