[Samba] Samba4 AD and Zimbra LDAP server

I plan to upgrade Samba to be a AD server (using FreeBSD)
I also have a Zimbra mail server using internal LDAP (it is OpenLDAP
with a schema suitable for the mail server)
At the moment I bind a few other web applications (Redmine, a wiki
etc) to the Zimbra server for LDAP authorisation.
Of course, I would like to simplify user experience by using the same
user/password for the Samba domain too.
Zimbra using Samba4 LDAP or the other way around.. all seems to be
tricky and it all feels unsupported/experimental..
I also thought about a password synchronisation as a "poor man's
solution" but I am not sure whether this is achievable, e.g. using
ldapsearch and friends. I am also not sure about the format used by
both LDAP servers yet, vaguely remembering Windows using MD4 in the
past or so.
Any help and recommendation would be appreciated.
