I didn't assume, it's the documentation that says so.
In fact, the winbindd man page says that the winbind daemon provides 
services to smbd and ntlm_auth, not the reverse:

"Even if winbind is not used for nsswitch, it still provides a service 
to smbd, ntlm_auth and the pam_winbind.so PAM module"

So, according to the documentation, you can run winbindd alone but you 
cannot run smbd/ntlm_auth without winbindd.
