  Yes.  See the "users" file.  It sets authentication to /etc/passwd (or
system) if there's no other method set.

  For PAP authentication, you have to configure that manually.  i.e.
tell the server "if you receive PAP, run ntlm_auth to authenticate
against AD".  See the "exec" module for how to run external programs.

  It looks like you didn't tell the server to authenticate against AD.
Please do so.
