[Samba] Add domain defauts to WORKGROUP if not specified

We currently are running smbclient 4.0.7. Users need to add domain name or "\" before username for authentication to succeed. Otherwise, smbclient prepends WORKGROUP\ to username.

In a particular environment, "WORKGROUP\username" does not have access to the user's home directory.

If we add "workgroup =" parameter in smb.conf file, it now passes. Is it valid to always to specify a "" workgroup value in the config file ? Does that have other concequences ?
