Not always, if you are running Samba as a domain member, then the main 
user database is stored on a DC, although they will be cached locally. 
If however as the OP seems to be doing, you are running samba as a 
Standalone server, you need to have a local database that is totally 
separate from any other user database, this is known as running as a 
WORKGROUP and it gets terribly messy after about 10 users.

The OP needs to explain just what his requirements are.

Yes, in a workgroup, you have to have system users and Samba users.
