Well, primary group is only one.
But you can use 'groups' to see all groups. Or 'id'.
If your user in in both 'Domain users' and 'sales' groups, then he'll be 
able to access 'drwxrwx--- root DOMAIN\sales ... only_sales_people'.

If you have nested groups, you'll have to enable the corresponding 
option in smb.conf .
