Samba4 - Account lock out / GPO

I've noticed that Samba4 by default locks the user account after "x" 
number of failed logins.

How can that be changed?  It would be good to know if it can be turned 
off completely (although I rather like the concept) and also how to 
change the number "x" of failed logins required to lock.

I imagine it could be done in the Group Policy editor but I can't seem 
to find the option.  I'm using the tools for Windows 7.

I'd certainly be comfortable with command-line options as well.
