Yes.  Since you've as much as quoted from the ntsec userguide section, I'm
not going to bother citing a reference.  The above rights are needed to
switch user contexts.  SYSTEM has it by default on most NT-based versions
of Windows (but may not on some more recent ones, notably 2003 server).

Cygwin (ntsec) is already set up for domain authentication.  However, to
be able to authenticate a domain user, that domain user has to be in
/etc/passwd (and his groups should most likely be in /etc/group).  Make
sure your /etc/passwd includes the users you're trying to authenticate.
