OK, Samba when running as an AD DC originally used 'winbind', this was a
part of the 'samba' binary and you could not run the 'winbindd' binary.
From version 4.2.0, 'winbind' was replaced by the separate 'winbindd'
binary (as used on a domain member), so you had to either explicitly
make the Samba binary run 'winbind' or install winbindd and allow the
Samba binary to start it.
