Not exactly, if the Samba AD DC is only going to be used for
authentication, then you could use the winbind 'rid' backend on Unix
domain members, this way you don't have to add anything to AD.

Windows uses SID-RID's to identify users, groups and computers, so you
do not need to do anything for Windows and a Samba AD DC to know who
an ID is. However, for Sysvol, Samba maps Windows ID's to Unix ID's in
idmap.ldb . So, yes, it is safe to ignore that part until you add
another Samba AD DC.
