[Samba] samba 4 as a pdc and /etc/passwd

I am remembering something wrong related to samba 4 and that there is no
longer a need to have machine accounts and user accounts exist in
/etc/passwd ? I want to set up a samba 4 domain controller as a bdc to a
samba 3 domain. Have the domain data base replicate and then shut down the
samba 3 pdc and promote the samba 4 to a pdc. It would be nice to ignore
having to migrate /etc/passwd because I did not set up ldap for the samba 3
