From the smb.conf man page.
winbind separator (G)
This parameter allows an admin to define the character used
when listing a username of the form of DOMAIN \user. This parameter is
only applicable when using the pam_winbind.so and
nss_winbind.so modules for UNIX services.
Please note that setting this parameter to + causes problems
with group membership at least on glibc systems, as the character + is
used as a special character for NIS in
Default: winbind separator = \
Example: winbind separator = +
