No, it doesn't. It allows *Samba* to communicate with the DSA. It is a
side-effect that CIFS/SMB clients then work.

Can anyone comment on the security of this workaround?

It's bad.

If you are using a local DSA then use an ldapi:// uri as this is more
secure and faster.

If you are using a remote DSA then fix your SSL setup [otherwise in your
smb.conf just set "ldap ssl = off"]. You need to setup the host so that
you can perform ldapsearch commands [from the command line] with the -ZZ
options specified [require TLS to successfully initialize].
