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

Then most probely only smbd and winbind.

^^^^^ 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.
