Samba 4.x if configured as an AD domain controller has LDAP server built 
in.  I haven't tested it but it should be OK for authenticating 
non-samba services.

Samba 3.x does not have an internal LDAP server.   A samba 3.x can use 
an external LDAP server (e.g. OpenLDAP or Oracle Directory Server) to 
store accounts.
