[Samba] AD howtos: LDAP needed?

Sorry for two messages, but I thought it would make more sense to use one
message per question.

Why do so many (but not all) AD howtos mention LDAP? Without configuring
LDAP I can use getent passwd or getent group to see the users in the AD.

Is there a benefit to also editing nsswitch to query LDAP?
