Can't run SAMBA from inetd

I'm trying to start SAMBA from the inetd.  I have added the port numbers
to /etc/services:

netbios-ns       137/udp              
netbios-ssn     139/tcp

To my inetd.conf I have added:

netbios-ssn stream tcp  nowait  root    /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd
netbios-ns  dgram  udp  wait    root    /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd

After this I killed any samba-prosecces, and refreshed the inetd with:

refresh -s inetd

This did not work.

Running SAMBA as a daemon works OK, but I would like to run it from
inetd because of the load on the server.

My system:  IBM RS 530 / AIX 3.2.5
