This and the Wiki, is pretty much AD and particularly DC "centred".

E.g. https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba finds other usage under

"5.2 Samba NT4-style domain documentation"

Maybe a _very_ obvious_ starting point is needed:

How do you want to setup your Sambas server?

- As an AD DC? - goto http:..
- As an AD member server? goto http:..
- As a NT4 style PDC? goto http:..
- As a NT4 style BDC? goto http:..
- As a NT4 domain member? goto http:..
- As a standalone server? goto http:..
- As a server with authorization configured per share - goto fail

Maybe it could be in the introduction of the mentioned page.
