Unless you have asked them to set up sites, all your domain computers 
will be in the 'Default-First-Site-Name' site. A 'site' will need to be 
created and then all your computers moved into this site. Samba does 
support sites and it works the same way as on Windows, so just tell your 
Windows sysadmins to forget the Linux bit and set AD as if they were all 
Windows computers.

Depending on what version your Windows DC's are, it might just be easier 
to join a Samba DC to the domain and do it yourself.
