For NT4 and AD domains, users are stored centrally in the domain
database on the PDC/DC. On domain members, users are pulled from the
PDC/DC. Central management of users is one of the major reasons why you
set up a domain.
On standalone hosts with authentication, users must exist in the OS
(doesn't matter where they are stored: passwd, NIS, LDAP, etc.) _and_ in
the local Samba database. This is described here:
