To do this, you will have to use the 'ad' backend and RFC2307

Not entirely true ;-)
If you use exactly the same [global] portion of smb.conf on every Unix

have a 'netbios name' parameter in smb.conf)

You could always tell us what you have at the moment and we can advise
from there, posting your existing smb.conf is bound to help ;-)
