No, I have never had to mess with this, but 'man smb.conf' says this:

           This parameter specifies the number of seconds the winbindd(8)
           daemon will cache user and group information before querying a
           Windows NT server again.

It looks like you reduce the time to make the cache refresh more often
and increase it to make the cache last longer, I would presume setting
it to '0' would make winbind query the server without using the cache,
but this is just a guess.
