Do you mean that you don't want them to change it accidentally 
through NT or you don't want them to change it at all?

  postexec = chmod 701 %H

would do the trick if you just want to enforce it via Samba.
I think that--sometimes--a hack is an "industry best practice."
Or "the simplest answer is sometimes the best."
