Yes, I really need winbind.  I'm trying to create a single sign-on system that will allow both Linux and Windows clients to authenticate to a samba domain controller.  It's my understanding that winbind is necessary for getting Linux clients to work with an NT-style domain controller.
Your system apparently does not incorporate Linux clients and so you don't need to set up winbind.
