The smbd man page documents a -l option:

-l log file
  If specified, log file specifies a log filename into which informational
  and debug messages from the running server will be logged. The log file
  generated is never removed by the server although its size may be controlled
  by the max log size option in the smbd.conf (5) file.  The default log
  file name is specified at compile time.
