Samba can become part of a domain:

... and samba can authenticate via NIS:

Couldn't you just make the filesystem available _both_ via NFS and Samba?  So, 
if you're a UNIX client you'd go through NFS and authenticate via NIS, 
ignoring SMB.  If you're a Windows client, you'd go through Samba, which 
would in turn authenticate against your PDC.
