[Samba] Default domain other than joined domain of a domain member

is there a way to use "winbind use default domain = yes" with a trusted 
domain and not with the domain the domain member was joined?

We have a child- or subdomain (sub.example.com) where all our computers 
are joined and most of the users are from the parent domain 
(example.com). So "sub" is the default domain and right now all users 
have to login with "example\username". This is a problem for some 
commercial software we are using, which do not work when a back slash is 
in the username. We can change the winbind separator to "+" but in this 
case users have to login with "example+username" in case of linux domain 
members and "example\username" in case of windows domain members. So it 
would be nice to be able to login with just the username in case of 
"example"-domain users.
