if your wanting to authenticate from the domain the easiest way
is to do security=SERVER and set the password server to the
PDC of the NT domain. You don't have to do security=domain.
If you really do want to do security=domain(can you say why?
I cannot see any advantage to using it). I believe you have to
join the samba server to the domain(search google on this, its
not a very straight forward process IMO).

I have used security=SERVER to authenticate off NT4 PDCs for
several years and its always worked flawlessly for me.
