Hi Rowland
nss-ldapd works OK without, _but_ we have to use filters to get at the
posix attributes. As we do with nss-ldap. sssd and winbind work with
whatever is already present in AD.

Just for the OP's sake, maybe he could try without the posixAccount and
have a go with:
filter  passwd  (objectClass=user) 
filter  group (objectClass=group)
in /etc/nslcd.conf
