Passwd/smbpasswd Sync

Quick question...

I see how samba wants to sync the smbpasswd->/etc/passwd, but how does it
handle it when the passwd file is changed first?  

My first guess is to just have users use smbpasswd to change the password
and then it will update /etc/passwd automatically.  So, I'd always change
smbpasswd first and let it change /etc/passwd.  I would never go
passwd->smbpasswd.  Is that how everyone else is handling it?
