[Samba] Cache auth credentials on Samba domain member

I have the following setup:
DOMAIN CONTROLLER (Win2003) <-> VPN TUNNEL <-> REMOTE SAMBA SERVER <->
The remote samba server is a CentOS 6.6 x86_64 server, with Samba
version 3.6.23. It acts as a domain member, configured with security =
ads; it uses winbind to enumerate Windows users and to grant share access.
Such setup works quite well, but I wonder how to cope with VPN
connection losses. At the moment, if the VPN connection goes down the
Samba server is (obviously) unable to authenticate users against the
domain controller, and the remote office's users can not work.
My question is: it is possible to cache the credentials or the
authentication status such as a connectivity loss does not impair the
remote client? I tried configuring "winbind cache time" and "winbind
offline logon", but without success.
Thanks you all.
