[Samba] samba4 and sssd and user mapping

Hi everyone,

on a server running samba4 with sssd for nsswitch mapping, I realized 
recently that on windows workstation in the "folder propery/security 
tab", users are mapped as "Unix user\userlogin" instead of 

I guess this is due to the fact that sssd mapping with getent passwd 
gives me user name without domain name (eg. userlogin), and in the 
samba4 smb.conf I don't know how to specify to use default domain, so it 
probably maps users to DOMAINNAME\userlogin.

Looking at sssd doc, I didn't find how to add domain name in sssd.conf, 
and in smb.conf, the only related command is "winbind use default 
domain", and I'd like to use sssd instead of winbind.

So I'd like to ask if there is a "use default domain" command for 
smb.conf without winbind?
