By the release of samba4 it has become possible to replace Microsoft AD with Linux as it is providing a kerberos authentication advantage over samba3 with a internal LDAP database.

I have been using samba4 as PDC and windows as client to configure the policies

you can check here for further knowledge on how to and why ..
