Is this actually a problem ???
This is the way Samba usually works, one smb.conf that winbind uses to
get the authentication settings which it passes to smbd (over
simplification) and smbd uses the same smb.conf to get its settings and
the shares info.

It might help if you could tell us just how you expect Samba to work.

Yes, you do have a problem, 'nmb' isn't running ;-)
