I am not quite sure, I understand your question correctly:
probably you will want to use commands like
# net groupmap add ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=wheel  type=d 
which would map the Windows group "Domain Admins" to the local UNIX
group wheel and so on. See the documentation on samba.org for more
details examples.
