No, you don't. Just use one samba server to authenticate against. With
'pam_smb.conf' leave the second server line empty. No space. Just CR. Otherwise
sometimes authentication works against some ghost server nowhere configured...

I remember there where programmes exporting the whole user and group database
of a NT PCD. But don't ask me where to find them. I am not sure, but I think
they where included on that technical reference CD.
