In smb.conf you specify those things which have meaning only to samba.
But the non-samba-specific bits are configured in /etc/ldap/ldap.conf.
For example, if you are using ldaps or ldap+tls (which you really
should), how are you going to tell samba where to find the CA cert that
authenticated the certs of your ldap servers? Answer: you put the
correct ssl-relevant config into /etc/ldap/ldap.conf (or
/etc/openldap/ldap.conf on RedHat-based distributions). Samba is using
the openldap client libraries, after all.
