Round about 12 years ago "chaining passdb backends" was removed! But 
their are other possibilities:

1. You can map local unix users and groups to their windows entrys.

2. You can use winbind's idmap feature; obey the "idmap ranges" and 
honor that the syntax has changed several times.

Just read the man pages of the samba version you are using!!! before 
searching the web.
