Samba3 cannot act as an AD domain controller and therefore cannot
operate in a trust with a native mode AD domain. Samba4 will be able
to do this but it is still under heavy development.

If you put your AD domain in mixed mode, you should be able to create
the trust although I'm not sure if you can convert a native to mixed
mode or not...
