The minimal "needed" services depends on how you use your server.

^^^^^ not totaly wrong/right, but ..  

Yes, you dont need dns for NT4 Style, because of netbios. 

No, you do needs DNS since, netbios is more and more disabled. 
Chicken and the egg problem...   ;-) 

And because of that, a correct setup with A-PTR and dnsdomainnames is a must. 
Note, A-PTR + DNSdomain setup, without dns server can work also, 
if your hosts and resolv.conf files are setup correctly. 

But he is running  bind so i assume that its setup correctly.

I think, he wants an stand alone samba server + ldap users for the system. 

Basicly, im guessing he want to know thse. ( in debian ) 

And the samba part.
