if it is the same package as on debian wheezy 
(samba4_4.0.0~beta2+dfsg1-1_i386.deb), then the package is probably 
missing the smbd/nmbd binaries. On a fresh install, "dpkg -L samba4 | 
grep smbd" returns nothing.

Last week I had to "make install" from the deb source package to get the 
corresponding binaries, and then everything was fine. It looks like a 
packaging problem.
