[Samba] Winbind & user ID's on multiple servers

We're looking at setting up Linux Authentication to our AD servers using
winbind and need to know if there is a way to keep all the user IDs in
sync across the Linux servers.  The way I see it now, the user ID is
assigned numerically depending on the order users log in to a server.
Could make for issues if NFS mounted directories are involved.

Thanks -
