[Samba] Question regarding permission bits for a share

Relatively Samba newbie here.  I have a laptop which has to be remain set to a Windows NT Domain instead of a workgroup.  I found that even from this laptop I can still map a network drive to my Samba server.  However, when I drag and drop files the permission bits for group are not set the way I want them to be; there remains no permissions for the group.  Now I would like the the group to have read/write permissions set automatically.  Another computer I have on my network is set to the Samba workgroup and dragging/dropping from this computer sets the permissions for group properly.  The only problem I have is setting permissions for group properly when I drag and drop from a laptop set to a Windows NT Domain.  Here is my share definition...

   comment = ABCDEFGHIJK
   path = /path/to/the/directory
   guest account = ours
   read only = no
   create mask = 0760
   guest ok = yes
   browseable = yes
   writable = yes
   directory mask = 0770
   volume = ABCDEFGHIJK
   force create mode = 775
   force directory mode = 775

Any suggestions for me to get this working the way I want?  Again, what I want is to get the group bits set to read/write when I drag&drop files from a laptop set to a Windows NT Domain and not a workgroup.
