Well, seeing as 'compat' is 'files' with extras, you do not need both.
see 'man nsswitch.conf'

I would go with:

passwd compat winbind
shadow compat
group compat winbind

Adding 'winbind' to shadow has been known to cause problems and it
isn't needed anyway.
Why have 'dns' in 'group' ? what does a group have to do with dns ?
