backup of NT server

What are currently the alternatives for backing op NT servers properly
over SMB?
I'm aware one could use SMBTAR or SMBFS to remotely backup the files,
but what about the NTFS permissions? As I understand it, SMB doesn't
have any permissions per se. The fs permissions decide what a specific
user can do over SMB, that's all. 
Is there a way to dump/restore these? I'm aware of cacls, but has anyone
seen a tool to recursively/dump restore NTFS permissions?

It would be a great help, so we can stop backing up those dumb boxes
manually ;-)
