In my environment, Windows 8 Pro (32bit), can join to Samba 3.5.6 domain.
I modified registries:
            DWORD  DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
            DWORD  DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0

You can download Samba environment I examined at

Of course I examined that after rebooting some domain accounts can logon
into Samba domain on Windows 8 box.
