Logon path you need for NT4-style domains and logon home for Win9x 
clients. I guess this is not what you want.

How are you retrieving the account information from your AD? Through 
winbind? Then have a look at the manpage for "template homedir". If you 
configure winbind to retrieve the information from AD "winbind nss info 
= rfc2307", then can define the location for each user individual in 
his/her account.

Please give some more information about your environment (Domain and the 
Samba member server) for providing better help.
