sssd is in debian sid, as is samba 4.1.3 

remove the sernet packages if you need sssd. 
sernet and sssd does NOT work ! ( yet )

get the sources and rebuild them for wheezy, its about 1/2 hour work.  
some tips how to do this.

1) add the sid sources to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sid.list  !! ONLY the deb-src * 
	*( You dont want mix sid and stable ) 
	* yes we do mix it, but compiled against the stable packages.
	  this way you dont get unwanted, sid packages, which can break your system.

2a) apt-get source sssd 
2b) apt-get source samba 
3a) apt-get build-dep sssd  
3b) apt-get build-dep samba  
if your missing dependecies, get the source also in the same way. 

install the needed packages you just build. dpkg -i package.deb 
when all dependecies are installed 
apt-get source sssd -b 
apt-get source samba -b

-b = get source and build. 

add a local directory to apt. 
look here. 
if dpkg-scanpackages  doesnt work, apt-get install dpkg-dev 

good luck.
