There is no "best" they are for doing different things with different technologies. What do you actually want to achieve? If you want to join a domain then that's Samba and winbind, if you want to query the ldap interface fo AD, then that's ldap.

As said, there is no 'best'. And based on what you posted, your question makes no sense. If you have a CentOS DATABASE server, then you don't need anything like LDAP/Winbind to connect to a database...just a database 'client', like mysql/oracle command line, ODBC, etc. If you mean that you want to INTEGRATE your Windows Active Directory WITH an LDAP server, yes, you can easily do that. And instructions for doing so are easily found with a Google search.
