[Samba] winbind as a name service "proxy"?

We hava a bunch of machines that needs to have the ability to look up users and groups (like with libnss_winbind) but we need to have the Kerberos and PAM stuff. We really don't want to join them to the AD. Are there any way to use one server as a proxy for name and group lookups?

[dumb-node] --> [master-node-with-winbind] --> [AD]
