of course you need a user....but its up to you where they are.

see your logs, it says

++[unix] returns notfound
[files] users: Matched entry DEFAULT at line 172

ie, it couldnt find a user in the system (/etc/passwd) and
it hit the DEFAULT entry in your users file (line 172)

read the modules/mschap file to see how to use smbpasswd
you should be able to use smbpasswd in the authenticate
section of the default virtual server
