[Samba] Scanning Trusted Hosts - Winbindd

Even with the definition
'allow trusted domains = no'
Winbindd still regularly scans the trusted domains. Why it needs to, I
have no idea. But the load on Winbindd is horrendous to the point where it
nearly cripples it in a scenario where the domain in question is connected
to many others around the word in a corporate intranet.
And then, when you do
wbinfo --domain MYDOMAIN -u
it will, if it is busy scanning those domains, simply time out on that
request. The international links are quickish, but they can get busy. And
I only want the ones in my local domain. If you remove the '--domain', it
is even worse as it trys to find the users in the trusted domains which is
a population of over 30,000, as well as the ones locally which are only
about 1000+. I only want to ask about ones in our local, country-wide,
Because it takes nearly 4 minutes to go through all those domains, and
failing to resolve their names, you only have a 1 minute window to do
complex things before it starts scanning again.
How do I tell Winbindd to only do things local to our OWN domain? I only
want to do things local to ourselves. Or, is it against the underlying SMB
