I never configured Samab to run from xinetd, but I did configure it to run
from inetd in the old days and everything worked just fine.  I don't see
why it shouldn't work with xinetd too.  Your guess is correct.  The daemons
won't be running unless a client tries to use them via a socket connection.
At that point, xinetd will launch the smbd and nmbd processes if the whole
thing is configured right.
