Winbind is as robust as sssd, it must be, sssd uses a Samba lib. There

I can try to help you to fix your problem, but not if you continue
using sssd, it has been years since I used it, ainly because I relised
I did not need it.

Whilst you are using sssd, it is doing your authentication and winbind
