from https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/FAQ#Trusts :

Does Samba support trust relationship with AD?

Trusts are currently not finished implemented. Samba can be trusted, but 
can't trust yet.

But even this is unofficial and should not be relied on, because "parts 
that appear to work are a partial development that just happen to be in 
our released versions" (July 2014).

Do trusts only not work in Samba AD only environments, and are fine in 
Samba AD/Windows environments?

No. The Samba DC just won't know much about the trust.

Inter-forest trust are not yet supported, but there is currently some 
work on it (cf. metze patches recently on the samba-technical mailing 
list). However for a forest support, you'll need intra-forest trust, 
global catalog, etc. and that will need even more work.
