Samba4 beta8: samba daemon doesn' t start nmbd daemon !

I use Samba4 beta8 as AD DC. But also I need fully working file server with
showing it at neighborhood.
In Samba4 beta6 I run samba as main daemon, then nmbd that server could be
showed at neighborhood.
But in beta8 doc is written: "When running an AD DC, you only need to run
'samba' (not nmbd/smbd/winbind), as the required services are co-coordinated
by this master binary. "
And at the same time there is "There is no NetBIOS browsing support (network
neighborhood) available for the AD domain controller." also.
If I run samba daemon only, it starts in itself, and also starts smbd daemon
(ps ajx |grep samba or smbd could show that) and there is access to the
server by NetBios protocols.
But samba daemon doesn' t start nmbd daemon at all - there is no such
process in the memory and the server is not showed at neighborhood.
But if I try to run nmbd separately (while samba daemon is in memory) , nmbd
is not started and I get an error:
nmbd version 4.0.0beta8 started.

server role = 'active directory domain controller' not compatible with
running nmbd standalone.
You should start 'samba' instead, and it will control starting the
internal nbt server
And I doesn' t still have the server being showed at neighborhood and could
not load nmbd manually separately.
I has nbt as server service in smb.conf also.
What should I do that Samba4 beta8 could be as AD DC and at the same time
could be showed at neighborhood ?
Or is it simply issue and samba damon has to load nmbd also ?
Or will it be done in coming Samba4 betas ?
