If you have domain with the following specs- you do not need winbind
- samba PDC
- no samba member servers
- samba BDC's optional
- no trusted domains
You would need winbind in any of following cases-
- you have a Samba PDC but you need to trust Windows domains
- you have a Samba server that is a member of a domain.
In the two cases above- winbind allocates and manages unix uid's and
gid's for the accounts from windows domains.
You may also need winbind if you have a samba PDC but also samba member
server(s)- again, to allocate unix uid's and gid's for users from the
domain (this depends on if you have a command LDAP/NIS backend for unix
