Did you set this up yourself or with a wizard? I didn't know samba  
could authenticate local users without some pam/nss changes. When I  
worked with pam and ldap a while back you could have it fallback to  
local unix files when a search in the directory failed. You should be  
able to modify your groups/nss setup to do that.
