that's not correct, as you need to merge the upstream stuff to your local 
branch, so you need svk pull (which implies a svk sync):

1.)  svk pull //local/SAMBA_3_0 
      this only updates the local repository branch, not the checkout tree

2.) foo at LOCALHOST:/home/foo/samba/samba3-local>svk pull
    this is a shortcut for:
    svk sync -a && svk pull //local/SAMBA_3_0 && svk update
